The RZA and Ghostface Killah of The Wu-Tang Clan are working on a film titled Angel of Dust, according to a story by Deadline. Inspired by horrifying, true tales that happened to them while growing up in the projects of Staten Island, the story was created by Ghostface Killah, along with Wu manager Michael Caruso, and was scripted by Stephen Smith and Matt Leslie who wrote 2018’s indie hit Summer of ’84. The film is set to be directed by RZA who has several directing credits and numerous acting credits on his resume. Producing, along with RZA, Ghostface and Caruso will be Shaun Redick (Get Out) and Yvette Yates of Impossible Dream Entertainment.
Synopsis: Casey is a normal yet exceptionally smart teenager and talented rapper but after the mysterious death of his parents he’s been forced to grow up in NY’s roughest inner-city streets (known as Shaolin in Wu-Tang folklore), basically on his own. As life in the hood around him gets tragically worse he must put his skills to the test to survive not only the gangs, corrupt cops, junkies and bullies, but also a serial killer with seemingly supernatural powers dubbed Angel of Dust by the media.
Of Angel of Dust, Ghostface Killah said, “it’s a blessing to partner with Oscar nominated producer Shaun Redick and Impossible Dream Entertainment, and to be doing business with my brother, RZA, directing is a dream come true. Putting all these great minds to work together will be legendary.” RZA added, “the creative collaboration of RZA and Ghostface has stood the test of time through our music. Now the opportunity to put our creative energies together onto the silver screen has arisen and I’m turbo charged.”
The Wu-Tang Clan will record the soundtrack and the score will be provided by RZA. No word yet on a potential release date or cast but check back to Horror News Network as we will be keeping a close eye on this story.
