News broke on Tuesday that Spike Lee’s next joint will be a musical movie about the breakthrough of Pfizer’s pre-coronavirus miracle drug: Viagra.

Lee is set to direct the Studio Entertainment One movie musical from a screenplay he has written with Kwame Kwei-Armah, while the original songs and music will be written by duo Stew Stewart and Heidi Rodewald.

Although still untitled, the musical is based on an Esquire article by David Kushner titled “All Rise: The Untold Story of the Guys Who Launched Viagra.”

The article details the true story of the erectile dysfunction drug, which was originally created to treat heart-related chest pain. Soon enough, doctors realized the little blue pill could do a lot more than that.

Particularly excited by the news, Twitter users immediately rose to the occasion and began guessing movie titles:

Okay, we’ll stop. We can’t keep this up forever, after all.
