Wu-Tang Clan producer RZA has revealed that, not only is there an Ol’ Dirty Bastard biopic in the works featuring actor Michael K. Williams as the late hip hop star, but a second biopic is being discussed about the fallen Wu member.
The Williams vehicle is called Dirty White Boy, and another film titled Dirt: One Word Could Change The World is also reportedly on the way.
“There’s two things going on with the ODB situation,” he said. “Thereâs Dirty White Boy, which is about the manager of ODB, and his last two years. And there’s another one with a working title called, Dirt: One Word Could Change The World, that his family is more involved with. His mother is involved with Dirty White Boy. I’m involved with both, anything about his life, I want to help out with any capacity. His mother told me I should come in and help.”
“As far as Dirt…, that actually starts back when we was young,” he said. “Me and [ODB] ran through this city, man, cutting school, stealing pretzels from the hot dog stand, being vagabonds, sleeping on the trains, drinking ’40s on the back of the A Train, rapping, getting chased by the police. It’s a coming of age story that me and him and a few of our cousins went through, Then it goes on into finally becoming Wu-Tang, going through that hell. And then it takes on his side of it, not my side.”
