Chadwick Boseman is going to star in Spike Lee’s new movie “Da 5 Bloods,” which was reportedly picked up by Netflix.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie centers around Vietnam veterans who go back to the jungle to find their lost innocence and put their lives back together. Jean Reno and Delroy Lindo are set to star in the project.

Lee and the “BlackKklansman” writer Kevin Wilmott are behind the screenplay, which is based on the original screenplay written by Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo and a rewrite by Matthew Billingsley.

Da 5 Bloods will be Lee’s first feature film with the streamer, which is also behind the series adaptation of his 1986 movie She’s Gotta Have It.

Meanwhile, Boseman will appear as T’Challan in this summer’s upcoming Marvel movie “Avengers: Endgame” and the upcoming crime thriller “17 Bridges.”
