    JACKIE ROBINSON

    Written and Directed by Spike Lee
    Based on the Book "I Never Had It Made" by Jackie Robinson

    Before Barry Bonds, before Reggie Jackson, before Hank Aaron, baseball's stars had one undeniable trait in common: they were all white. In 1947, Jackie Robinson (Denzel Washington) broke that barrier, striking a crucial blow for racial equality and changing the world of sports forever. The film recalls Robinson's early years and influences: his time at UCLA, where he became the school's first four-letter athlete; his army stint during World War II, when he challenged Jim Crow laws and narrowly escaped court martial; his years of frustration, on and off the field, with the Negro Leagues; and finally that fateful day when Branch Rickey (Robert Redford) of the Brooklyn Dodgers proposed what became known as the "Noble Experiment" — Robinson would step up to bat to integrate and revolutionize baseball. More than a baseball story, the film also reveals the highs and lows of Robinson's life after baseball. He recounts his political aspirations and civil rights activism; his friendships with Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, William Buckley, Jr., and Nelson Rockefeller; and his troubled relationship with his son, Jackie, Jr.

    REPLICANT

    Written by Gary Whitta
    Based on Characters from the Novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick

    A rejected pitch for a sequel to Blade Runner proposed as an opportunity to delve even deeper into the themes and ideas presented in the original film. What does it mean to be human? We all want to believe that we are more than just the sum of our parts, but in a future age in which even memories and emotions can be artificially manufactured, how can we even feel secure in our own humanity? What responsibility do we have to the sentient Replicants we so casually mass-produce? And how can we engineer something genetically indistinguishable from a “real” human and not expect it to be driven by the most fundamental of human instincts — the desire to exist, to survive — and to reproduce? The film would be an original story, with all-new characters, set in the Blade Runner universe, telling the story of a Replicant protagonist in a world of human villainy in contrast to the original film, which featured a human protagonist hunting Replicant villains.
