EXCLUSIVE: Rapper and filmmaker RZA (The Man With The Iron Fists, Gang Related) has joined the cast of Mr. Right, the action-comedy-romance that Neon Flesh‘s Paco Cabezas is directing from a script by Chronicle scribe Max Landis. Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick lead the story of a woman whose unlucky streak in love seemingly ends when she meets the perfect guy – who turns out to be a hitman. Well, nobody’s perfect. RZA will play Shotgun Steve, an expert marksman who works for a rival gangster. The Grammy-winning Wu-Tang Clan MC and producer, who was nominated for a BAFTA for his Kill Bill score, is coming off Paramount’s G.I. Joe 2 on the big screen and Fox’s recently cancelled Gang Related on the small screen. He also starred opposite the late Paul Walker in this year’s Brick Mansions and is plotting a sequel to his 2012 directorial debut, The Man With The Iron Fists. RZA is repped by CAA and Lichter, Nichols, Adler, Grossman.
