Luke Replaces Troubled Snipes
DEREK LUKE has replaced WESLEY SNIPES in director SPIKE LEE's new World War Two movie.
The Antwone Fisher star will head off to Italy to star in Miracle At St. Anna, in which he'll play one of four members of the U.S. Army's all-black 92nd Division who get separated from their squad behind enemy lines.
Snipes was forced to pull out of the film project because federal tax fraud charges made it difficult for him to leave America. Snipes has pleaded not guilty.
