While director Spike Lee may have Wesley Snipes, he doesn't want his voice for a new biopic. According to MTV Movies Blog, Lee has said he will overdub James Brown's voice for his James Brown biopic, which Wesley Snipes will star in as the legendary "Godfather of Soul."
"I want to hear James Brown's voice," Lee said. "That's just my personal taste."
The technique has been used before, like director Taylor Hackford used Ray Charles' real voice in Ray, dubbing over Jamie Foxx.
"I know Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line, he did some of the singing," Lee added. "I'm a purist," he explained.
