The RZA in DJango Unchained

Wu Tang’s The RZA is continuing to rack up movie roles, this time in a controversial film by Quentin Tarantino.

As previously reported Will Smith and Idris Elba were said to be battling it out for the lead role in ‘Django Unchained’ that ultimately went to Jamie Foxx.

RZA will play Thaddeus, “a violent slave working on a Mississippi plantation.”

Django unchained tells the story of a “freed slave who seeks to reunite with his slave wife, a journey which will see him team up with a German bounty hunter to take down an evil plantation owner.”

The film, which begins production in the fall, also may include Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz in key roles.
