RZA Lines Up Two More Directing Gigs With ‘No Man’s Land’ and Genghis Khan Biopic

Hollywood is wasting no time claiming the RZA as one of their own, as the rapper-turned-director has just signed on for two more directing gigs — a Ghengis Khan biopic and the action thriller ‘No Man’s Land’ — and ‘The Man With the Iron Fists‘ hasn’t even premiered yet. That’s some clout.

RZA, formerly of the Wu-Tang Clan (who are, by the way, nothing to f— with), has traded in his mic for the director’s chair with his upcoming flick ‘The Man With the Iron Fists,’ a classic martial arts and samurai throwback starring RZA, Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, and co-written and produced by Eli Roth. Word of mouth is fantastic and we can’t wait to see the film when it hits theaters this Friday.

The film hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but RZA’s already locked down his next two projects, according to THR:

The first is the John Milius-penned epic ‘Genghis Khan,’ a film that’s been in the pipeline for years, with Milius (‘Apocalypse Now’) attached to direct it himself and Mickey Rourke set to star as the legendary warrior at various points. RZA will now direct the film, which will take him back to China to begin production next year.

The other project is ‘No Man’s Land,’ based on a script by Trey Ellis and David Klass — this film tells the story of a thief who procures a diamond from a very powerful criminal, and finds himself on the run from said criminal with the help of a dancer.
