We won’t see how RZA‘s debut, The Man with the Iron Fists, shakes out until this November, but a man with some power has already bet on the rapper-turned-filmmaker. Not Quentin Tarantino — I’m sure he’ll continue to aide him for years and years, though — but someone with a close connection.
Rather, Deadline reports that Django Unchained producer Reginald Hudlin (I said he was close) is partnering with RZA to create “a series of comic-related projects,” one of which has superhero leanings; if things really go well, they’ll even get a company out of it. Being curious about the guy’s film future, though, I find the dearth of additional information somewhat unfortunate — this is probably on account of the deal, whatever the already-established specifics, being so early into its non-sentient life — though I’ll be keeping an eye on where this might go in the coming months.
Do you hope to see RZA dive further into the world of directing? Does Iron Fists appear to be a good start?
