Wu Tang leader turned actor turned director RZA will follow-up his directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists with a biopic on Mongol leader Genghis Kahn, the Hollywood Reporter has revealed.

RZA is teaming up with filmmaker John Milius to bring Genghis Khan to the big screen, with Milius providing the massive screenplay and RZA stepping behind the camera again. The hip-hop legend has another project up his sleeves too, as it has also been announced that he will helm the upcoming action thriller No Man’s Land.

The proposed biopic has been in the pipeline for years now, with Milius having written the screenplay and signing on as executive producer for some time now. It is with the announcement that RZA will direct that the film has finally been given some kind of confirmation that it will come into fruition in the near future, although an exact date has not been given yet. Andre Morgan and Peter Lam have signed on to produce the project, with filming expected to begin next year in China, where RZA filmed most of TMWTIF.

Meanwhile, No Man’s Land is expected to be released before the Mongol epic and will follow a male protagonist who steals a powerful criminal's diamond that proves to be far more valuable than initially thought. The film follows events that last over only one night and those behind the film have said that it is somewhat resembling of The Warriors.
