Spike Lee has crossed the $1 million mark on the Kickstarter campaign for his upcoming independent film.

The director set a goal of $1.25 million for the campaign and he’s quickly nearing the amount. He has already received support from over 5,000 people, with four of them donating $10,000. Those who pledge the most money will receive prizes varying from court side tickets to a New York Knicks basketball game alongside Lee to a chance to spend the day on the set of the film.

Lee has not given away much details on the film but he’s said that it will center around “humans addicted to blood.”

Lee initially caught flack from critics who believe that he is taking funding from other filmmakers who are in greater need of it.

“Their agenda blew up in their face,” Lee said of those in opposition of his Kickstarter campaign.

“I’ve been doing Kickstarter since before there was a kickstarter.”
