Common and RZA are working on an adaption of the 1970s book series titled ˝Black Samurai˝.
As would be expected, Common will the lead actor playing Robert Sand. RZA will be an executive producer.
The show will be developed under Cinematic studios. Andre Gaines, who has the rights to the original Marc Olden series, will be the developer of the show.
In the narrative, Robert Sand is trained by a Japanese master and he then goes on to seek vengeance “for terrorists and evil powers that have killed the people that he loves.”
Here’s what Gaines had to say about the participation of RZA.
“There is a long tradition and storied relationship between hip-hop and martial arts,” Gaines said. “Having RZA and the Wu-Tang Clan brand on board to executive produce will validate the series even more and mobilize the fans.” blackouthiphop.com
