As previously reported, Samuel L. Jackson will play the role of Sho’nuff, originated by the late Julius Carey. Rihanna will play the female lead made famous by Prince protégé Vanity in the first film.
While Vanity played Ms. Charles, a famous singer who hired the martial arts student as a bodyguard, Rihanna will play “a super sexy, super kinky dominatrix,” a source tells WENN.
John Davis of Davis Entertainment and Gordy’s son Kerry Gordy, along with the RZA are set to produce. Penning the screenplay as well as producing is Dallas Jackson, who heads up the urban family label DJ Classicz with Davis.
