RZA To Help Direct A Series Of Comic-Related Films
RZA continues his work in the film industry, and his first project may be "The Black Panther."
RZA has teamed up with Reginald Hudlin, former President of Entertainment for BET and producer of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained to work on a series of projects.
Deadline reports that RZA, who has directed and starred in his own film, The Man With the Iron Fists, will join Hudlin to direct and produce a series of comic-related projects, and potentially start their own company.
Hudlin wrote The Black Panther series for Marvel Comics from 2005 to 2008, which has been repeatedly rumored to be a possible upcoming feature.
The Black Panther centers around a modern day African chief with superhuman senses and abilities.
RZA joins Method Man and Ghostface Killah as other Wu-Tang Clan emcees to be involved with comic book projects. Both Meth and Ghost have written and starred in their own graphic novels.
