Knicks fans: Have you ever dreamed of yelling at players from your front-row Garden seat a la Spike Lee? How about doing so alongside the director? Yeah? Then you’re in luck…if you have $10,000 to throw around.
In an attempt to raise money for his latest project (the follow-up to his big-budget Oldboy remake that comes out this fall?), the outspoken New Yorker goes all Zach Braff, asking fans to fund his latest project. (You don’t have o be super-rich to chip in, obviously; a $5 donation gets a thank-you tweet from the director.)
In related Kickstarter news, we just received word that you can plop down $15,000 to have Woody Allen cook you dinner (and perform a post-feast clarinet solo) in his pad. Kidding.
