Wu-Tang Clan vet RZA
who has released the soundtrack to his highly anticipated directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists, has already lined up two more films as helmer.
The hip-hip producer will helm John Milius’ biopic Genghis Khan
and the action thriller No Man’s Land
The first project is a long-in-development script by John Milius
(Red Dawn), which tells the story of the famous 13th century Mongol emperor who held the largest contiguous empire in history. A few years ago, Mickey Rourke was rumored to lead and Milius was looking to direct.
The story will be reportedly told from the point of view of Mongol conqueror’s son and grandson, and will be shot in China next year.
Secondly, No Man’s Land from a script written by Trey Ellis
and David Klass
takes place on one night and will focus on ‘a man who steals a powerful criminal’s diamond that soon proves to be far more valuable than initially thought. With the help of a dancer, he attempts to stay alive and cash in on the jewel.’
No Man’s Land will probably be RZA’s follow-up to The Man with the Iron Fists, says THR
The Man With the Iron Fists
opens this Friday at a theater near you.
