News broke last week that all members of the Wu-Tang Clan would likely play themselves in the upcoming Ol’ Dirty Bastard biopic, Dirty White Boy.
Now, however, it looks like at least one Clansman will not be involved. GZA’s representatives recently stated “Spoke to GZA today. I will tell you 100% he is not appearing in the ODB / Jarred Weisfeld movie. I can’t speak for the rest of the group, but definitely not true about GZA.”
There’s no update yet on any of GZA’s bandmates and their involvement in the film. Boardwalk Empire’s Michael K. Williams is set to play ODB in the film, which will be directed by Joaquín Baca-Asay and written by Brent Hoff. [Pitchfork]
