EURweb is reporting that Spike Lee will be reprising the role of Mookie from Do the Right Thing fame in his latest offering, Red Hook Summer. The film follows an adult from Atlanta who comes and spends the summer in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, N.Y. Lee will be reprising his 1989 role as Mookie, the Brooklyn pizza-delivery worker.

The film has just started production, so you'll have to wait a little while to see Lee as Mookie again. We want to know if he will bring back the characters of Mother Sister and Buggin Out, played brilliantly by Ruby Dee and Giancarlo Esposito. Now, that would be cool.
