Spike Lee's plan to make a movie about serial killer Son of Sam has gotten a thumbs-down from the father of one of the victims.
Michael Lauria is urging the filmmaker to drop the "Summer of Sam" project. Lauria's daughter Donna was Son of Sam's first victim in 1976."I can't believe that anyone would make a movie about the Son of Sam," Lauria told the Daily News. "He admitted to killing my daughter."
David Berkowitz, who called himself Son of Sam, killed six people in random shootings from the summer of 1976 to July 1977. Seven others were wounded in the attacks that terrorized New York City. Berkowitz is serving six consecutive 25 years-to-life terms in state prison.
Lee is scheduled to film scenes in a Bronx neighborhood not far from where Lauria's daughter was shot, among other New York locales.
