It's a 'Miracle': Tuscany lauds, poses for Lee


Spike Lee's latest film project, "Miracle at St. Anna," will shoot in Tuscany, Italy, backed by the new production company On My Own, created by producers Roberto Cicutto and Luigi Musini (HR 6/7).

Lee was already scheduled to come to Tuscany in July to accept the Fiesole Master of Film Prize.

The film, based on James McBride's prize-winning novel, tells the story of three U.S. soldiers who venture between the German lines and the squadrons of predominantly black U.S. divisions in World War II in Italy in order to rescue a comrade.
