Fresh off his directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists, which opens this Friday, RZA has joined two new film projects, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Wu-Tang Clan leader has signed on to direct John Milius' Genghis Khan, with Andre Morgan and Peter Lam producing. The biopic will be told from the perspective of the Mongol warlord's son and grandson.

RZA will also helm the action thriller No Man's Land. Written by Trey Ellis and David Klass, the movie focuses on a thief who swipes a powerful criminal's diamond without knowing the jewel's true value. The film takes place during one night as the thief tries to stay alive with the help of a dancer while successfully dealing the stolen diamond.
