Director Malcolm Lee is re-editing his new movie Soul Men in an attempt to honor his late stars Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes, who both died over the weekend.

Lee, the cousin of moviemaker Spike Lee, insists he won't be making huge changes to the completed film or altering its release date, but he is keen to pay a fitting tribute to his stars.

He says, "This isn't like (Batman film) Dark Knight, where Heath Ledger died while editing was in its infancy; most of our editing is done.

"We'll go back and see if there is anything we can do better... I want my movie to be a tribute to both of them."

Funnyman Mac died on Saturday from complications relating to pneumonia; Hayes died a day later after collapsing at his home in Memphis, Tennessee.
