Ice Spice was nominated for four Grammys at this year’s ceremony, including Best New Artist. “Barbie World,” her song with Nicki Minaj, was featured on the Barbie soundtrack.

Ice Spice has also had prominent collaborations with artists including Taylor Swift as she gears up to release her debut studio album, Y2K, later this year.

A24 posted a photo to X (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday of Lee and Washington, along with the caption, “No. 5 now in production,” as High and Low marks the fifth film collaboration for the pair.

Their previous films together were Inside Man (2006), He Got Game (1998), Malcolm X (1992) and Mo’ Better Blues (1990).

Kurosawa’s 1963 movie focused on a Japanese shoe executive faced with a difficult decision amid a high-stakes corporate takeover when his chauffeur’s son is kidnapped.

The movie was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Film.

Lee’s High and Low was developed and produced by A24, Escape Artists and Mandalay Pictures, with Lee and Alan Fox credited for the script.

A24 will release the feature theatrically ahead of its streaming debut on Apple TV+.
