RZA Confirms an Ol' Dirty Bastard Biopic Is Currently in the Works

RZA has officially revealed that as part of Wu-Tang Clan‘s film and television venture, a third project is on the way, this time focusing on one of the group’s icons, Ol’ Dirty Bastard. The group’s ventures first began with Showtime’s Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men which was a four-episode TV documentary that took a look back on the hip-hop group’s career, showing never-before-seen archival performances and footage of the crew. Hulu also produced an original series featuring Ashton Sanders, Shameik Moore and Dave East, titled Wu-Tang: An American Saga.

In a recent interview, RZA discussed the upcoming documentary on Ol’ Dirty Bastard stating, “The documentary was to capture the story as best we can in the reality of it, and then the TV series was to dramatize it. The third tier of the plan, which I’m in progress of, is an ODB movie biopic. Like the five-year Wu-Tang plan, this was a five-year media plan that I concocted, I meditated on, and I’m striving to live out. So far, it’s working well.”

ODB, known as one of the group’s most iconic members, died in 2004. There has yet to be a dedicated biopic that focuses on just him. There is currently no word on when the doc is set to release.

In case you missed it, Netflix recently dropped the teaser trailer for the final season of Ozark.
