GZA Will Not Act in ODB Biopic Despite Other Wu Member Appearances


(AllHipHop News) This past weekend, it was revealed that several members of the Wu-Tang Clan are set to appear in the new ODB biopic film, Dirty White Boy.

Despite claims that all of the members of Wu-Tang would be in the new flick, the GZA who was also ODB’s cousin, has confirmed that he will not be a part of the new movie.

“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,” GZA’s representatives told Pitchfork.

Despite statements by GZA’s reps, Michael K. Williams, who played Omar from “The Wire” and who will play ODB in the upcoming movie, stated, “[We] have no desire to cast any actors as the Wu-Tang. We need all hands on deck.”

While the rest of the cast to the film is being coordinated, RZA, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Method Man have confirmed their appearances in the biopic to be directed by Joaquin Baca-Asay, and produced by Lars Knudsen, Jay Van Hoy, and Tod Hagopian.

The film is shot from the perspective of Jarred Weisfeld, a manager and former VH1 intern who worked alongside the rapper prior to his passing in 2004.

GZA also made headlines this past week for living up to his nickname and reputation as “The Genius.” By enlisting scientists from MIT and Cornell to help write his lyrics, and by hiring musicians from Juliard to help compose the music, the rapper will examine the cosmos on his newest effort, Dark Matter, releasing this fall.

  • GZA need to put whatever anomosity he has to the side and make this happen…
