Chalk it up to Quentin Tarantino’s endorsement as RZA signs on for a couple new film projects as some of the world eagerly awaits next week’s The Man with the Iron Fists. And one of those projects takes on no less than the life and times of Genghis Khan, the Mongol warrior turned emperor who acquired kingdoms and people through some pretty nasty, violent means. The film will be titled, logically, Genghis Khan.
It’s Asian and violent, so it should be no surprise that RZA is involved. The tyrant’s story will be told through his son and grandson, which sounds pretty damn intriguing, and will probably be of such a scale that will make or break RZA’s status as a blockbuster director.
Further, he’ll be doing all of this in the shadows of Bill and Ted‘s depiction of Khan. Big shoes to fill, RZA.
