Rza To Remake Woo's Bullet?

Cult moviemaker JOHN WOO has given fledgling director ROBERT 'RZA' DIGGS permission to remake movie 1990 classic DIE XUE JIE TOU (A BULLET IN THE HEAD) after striking up a bizarre friendship with the WU-TANG CLAN star.
Diggs has yet to start shooting his first film, The Man With The Iron Fist, but it appears he already has his second movie planned.
The rapper says, "His movie, Bullet In The Head, he said I can make it over. He said, 'You will get no resistance from me.'"
Diggs and Woo became unlikely pals after the rapper sampled dialogue from the Chinese filmmaker's The Killer in hit track Only Build 4 Cuban Linx and they briefly studied kung fu together under RZA's New York master, Shi Yan Ming, according to the Los Angeles Times.
