Lee: 'Film Will Be A Tribute To Mac + Hayes'

Director MALCOLM LEE is re-editing his new movie SOUL MEN in a bid to honour his late stars BERNIE MAC and ISAAC HAYES, who both died at the weekend (09-10Aug08).
Lee, the cousin of moviemaker Spike Lee, insists he won't be making huge changes to the completed film or altering its release dates, but he is keen to pay a fitting tribute to his stars.
He says, "This isn't like (Batman film) Dark Knight, where Heath Ledger died while editing was in its infancy; most of our editing is done.
"We'll go back and see if there is anything we can do better... I want my movie to be a tribute to both of them."
Funnyman MAC died on Saturday (09Aug08) from complications relating to pneumonia; Hayes died a day later (10Aug08) after collapsing at his home in Memphis, Tennessee.
