New one sheets for Spike Lee's Chi-Raq arrive online

Amazon Studios have recently released their first one sheets for Spike Lee's (Inside Man) Chi-Raq.

Written by Lee and Kevin Willmott (Ninth Street), Chi-Raq is based on Aristophanes' Lysistrata, a classical Greek comedy play in which women withhold physical affection from their husbands as punishment for fighting in war.

Teyonah Parris (Dear White People) plays Lysistrata, the girlfriend of a Chicago gang leader (Nick Cannon) who persuades other frustrated women to abstain from sex until their men agree to end the senseless cycle of violence.

With an ensemble cast that includes Wesley Snipes (Blade), Angela Bassett (Olympus Has Fallen), Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained), John Cusack (High Fidelity), Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) and Dave Chappelle (Undercover Brother), Chi-Raq is available in the US now and should arrive in the UK early next year.
