Director Spike Lee, best known for making films about the experience of being black in America, is changing course on the subject of Viagra – with his first music.

Lee will direct a yet-untitled film as a screenplay in which he has written about the discovery and launch of erectile dysfunction. It is based on a 2018 article by Esquire magazine called “All Rises”, the producers said on Tuesday.

The original song and music will be written in 2008 about a Black Artist’s journey to self-discovery behind the Tony-award winning rock musical “Passing Strange”.

A statement from the 63-year-old Brooklyn native stated that he was hating music despite his mother’s efforts. “Finally my 4 decades as a filmmaker, I will direct a dancer, all music ‘music,” he said.

Pfizer Inc.’s Viagra, first marketed in 1998, was originally developed as a possible treatment for heart-related chest pain.

Spike Lee won his first Oscar in 2019 for the script of Ku Klux Klan satire Blackclassman. His filmography includes classics such as Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X and this year’s Vietnam War Survivor drama Da 5 Bloods.
