In an era where Hip-Hop Biopics are becoming more and more common thanks to the success of "Straight out of Compton," it looks as if we are going to be getting a film adaption of the lie of the late Ol' Dirty Bastard produced by RZA and being developed by Sony Pictures. While no one has been picked as a director or cast in the film expect to get the movie sometime soon.
Back when "Straight out of Compton", was released RZA was asked about the notion of an ODB biopic in which he responded:
"I think it's a great idea, and there has been talk about it, there are a few wheels in motion with one done by our first cousin Rayshawnm... He was the young guy there watching everything that happened. Him and ODB's wife have been talking and he has a pretty interesting script. I just saw a 12-minute teaser that he shot about a year ago and it felt pretty fuckin' cool. I watched it and was like, wow, you may have something here, he has the best thing that I've seen so far."
Are you looking forward to seeing ODB come back to life in a film adaption?
