RZA is no stranger to Quentin Tarantino's methods, having written the score for both volumes of Kill Bill for their first collabo in 2003, and most recently for his Tarantino-produced, directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists. And now, Wu-Tang's front man and powerhouse producer has teamed up with the cult-status filmmaker once again for his Spagetti-Western-style slave revenge story, Django Unchained.
According to Variety, RZA will join the jam-packed ranks as "Thaddeus, a violent slave working on a Mississippi plantation." With a cast that already includes a sizeable amount of star power, including Jamie Foxx as the leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Don Johnson, Anthony LaPaglia and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the sheer volume of talent alone is enough to entice us to by tickets.
And with a new star seemingly added every day, the big question regarding Tarantino's film, which is scheduled for a Christmas 2012 release, has become... who is not going to be in this film?
Only time will tell who evades Tarantino's wide grasp.
