RZA To Co-Produce The Last Dragon Remake

Wu-Tang Clan's RZA assists on Last Dragon remake, with Samuel L. Jackson as Sho'Nuff.

Reuters reports RZA [click to read] and Dallas Jackson are co-producing a remake of Berry Gordy's cult classic martial arts film, The Last Dragon. Few details have emerged thus far, but Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed he will reprise the part of Sho'nuff the Shogun of Harlem. Dallas Jackson, whose previous film works include production on I, Robot and Norbit, is currently writing the script.

"I'm a huge fan of the original and look forward to bringing Sho'Nuff into the 21st century," says Jackson.

The as-yet-untitled project will be included as part of Motown's 50th anniversary next year. After its release in 1985, the original Last Dragon grossed nearly $26 million. There is currently no word on if RZA will score the film as well. The Wu-Tang Clan's primary beatsmith has previously scored Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill and also Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai. RZA and Samuel L. Jackson will also be working on the sequel to the Anime movie Afro Samurai, which is expected to be released in 2009.
