Spike Lee Vows To Make ‘Save Us, Joe Louis’ Boxing Drama & Promised Screenwriter Budd Schulberg To Make It Before His Death

The annals of film history have a lot of unmade, lost, and forgotten projects. A veteran filmmaker like Spike Lee, naturally has lots of them (we recounted 10 of them in 2013). One of those projects is an unmade boxing movie called “Save Us, Joe Louis,” about the friendship and rivalry between boxing heavyweight champion Joe Louis, and German heavyweight boxing champion Max Schmeling. Two of their fights are legendary in boxing history, and there’s even an intensely-detailed Wikipedia page dedicated to these fights and the surrounding dramas. In 2011, Lee said that Arnold Schwarzenegger could have played Schmeling at the time, but also seemed resigned to the fact it was a film that was just never getting made.
