*Action on the proposed Ol’ Dirty Bastard biopic is being set in motion, supposedly with talks about whose gonna play the late Wu-Tang Clan rapper.
In a joking conversation RZA said Eddie Griffin and Tracy Morgan all said they want to be ODB.
According to RZA, Eddie Griffin seems to have the edge to get the part. He says, “Eddie spent time with Dirty. They knew each other well.”
The script is being written by Raeshawn, a cousin of the late rapper.
He says, “He’s been working on it for two years now. [In fact] I think Eddie’s already signed on with a letter of intent—I signed on, of course. So you know [Raeshawn] got my blessin’ to make it happen.”
Another biopic is in the works, this time for Wu-Tang member Raekwon with Cee Lo Green to play his father.
Meanwhile, RZA is doing his thing in the film industry. He just finished directing his first feature film, “The Man With The Iron Fist” starring Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu.
