RZA has teamed up with Reginald Hudlin, former President of Entertainment for BET and producer of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained to work on a series of projects.
Deadline reports that RZA, who has directed and starred in his own film, The Man With the Iron Fists, will join Hudlin to direct and produce a series of comic-related projects, and potentially start their own company.
Hudlin wrote The Black Panther series for Marvel Comics from 2005 to 2008, which has been repeatedly rumored to be a possible upcoming feature.
The Black Panther centers around a modern day African chief with superhuman senses and abilities.
RZA joins Method Man and Ghostface Killah as other Wu-Tang Clan emcees to be involved with comic book projects. Both Meth and Ghost have written and starred in their own graphic novels.
