While Spike Lee works to bring his feature directorial debut to Netflix as a series, Lee and the man who shot the film (also a director in his own right), Ernest Dickerson, are apparently also working on a 4K restoration of “She’s Gotta Have It” for an eventual re-release – a move that’s likely being timed with the premiere of the upcoming Netflix series based on the film, which Netflix has now set for Thanksgiving per the first teaser trailer below.
No word yet on when the 4K restored “She’s Gotta Have It” will be released; but if it’s timed to happen around the same period as the premiere of the Netflix series, then it should also happen this fall.
Netflix ordered a 10-episode series for “She’s Gotta Have It” which Lee is directing and executive producing, along with his producer-wife Tonya Lewis Lee.
In the upcoming series DeWanda Wise is starring as Nola Darling; Cleo Anthony is Greer Childs; Anthony Ramos is Mars Blackmon; Lyriq Bent is Jamie Overstreet; Margot Bingham is Clorinda Bradford; and Sydney Morton is Sheryl Overstreet.
Chyna Layne and Ilfenesh Hadera also appear in the series which is set to premiere on Thanksgiving.
Following the release of last week’s teaser, Netflix has dropped a new sneak for “She’s Gotta Have It” in which viewers are introduced to Nola’s 3 lovers. Watch it below, followed by the teaser if you missed it. A full trailer should be just around the corner.
And here’s the teaser.
Here’s the official poster
