Wesley Snipes is "in great shape" in jail and is plotting his comeback, according to close friend Spike Lee.
The star began a three-year prison sentence in December 2010 for neglecting to file income tax returns, and moviemaker Lee visited his pal in prison in Pennsylvania on Monday.
Updating fans about the star's wellbeing, he insists Snipes is doing well and is looking forward to life as a free man.
In a series of posts on Twitter, Lee writes, "Yesterday I Went To McKean Federal Correctional Institute in West Hell, Pennsylvania To Spend 2 Great Hours With My Man Wesley Snipes.
"Mr.Snipes Is In Great Shape, Mentally, Physically & Spiritually. We Laughed & Joked For The Whole 2 Hour Visit. He Said When He Gets Out - It's On."
When asked by a fan about a joint project with Snipes in the future, Lee replied, "We talked 'bout it."

Snipes has always maintained his innocence and insists he was duped by tax advisors.
