Academy Award-winning director Spike Lee has gifted the world the script he wrote for a biopic about legendary baseball player Jackie Robinson that was never made.
In a video posted on his Instagram page Sunday, Lee described the film as one of his "dream projects" and said he wanted Denzel Washington to play the role of Robinson. Washington apparently thought he was "too old," though.
"I pulled this script out of the vault, and so I want to share the script with you,” Lee said. "And also, don't worry about it if you don't like baseball or sports - this is a great American story."
The script, written in 1996, is based on the book, "I Never Had It Made: An Autobiography of Jackie Robinson."
