quietearth [Celluloid 05.07.10] movie news action kungfu

This is a great day for all Wu-Tang fans. Why? Because the long discussed kung-fu project he's been working on with Eli Roth is getting backed by Universal, and I am just drooling at the thought of the insane Afro Samurai world he's going to create filled with RZA-produced beats. Yeah boyeeee. Hopefully he gets GZA to do some line for line too.

RZA will direct from a script co-written with Eli Roth an will also star as the main character, "a blacksmith who forges weapons for the inhabitants of a village in feudal China. They are forced to defend themselves, and before you know it, everybody is kung fu fighting." No, that lame ass song references is not from me, it's a quote from the source.

Universal will finance and distribute the film which will shoot in September in Hong Kong for under $20 million. I can't wait!

More as it comes! Via Deadline.
