*Following the premiere of their Showtime documentary “Of Mics and Men” at Sundance Film Festival, Wu-Tang Clan members RZA and Ghostface Killah have announced that they are co-producing a suspense horror-thriller titled “Angel of Dust.”

The duo are working on the project with “BlacKkKlansman” producer Shaun Redick, which, according to Deadline, is based on true stories from the streets of New York.

RZA will reportedly direct from a story written by Ghostface and Wu-Tang’s longtime manager Michael Caruso.

The logline for “Angel of Dust” reads:

Casey is a normal yet exceptionally smart teenager and talented rapper but after the mysterious death of his parents he’s been forced to grow up in NY’s roughest inner-city streets [known as Shaolin in Wu-Tang folklore], basically on his own.

As life in the hood around him gets tragically worse he must put his skills to the test to survive not only the gangs, corrupt cops, junkies and bullies, but a serial killer with seemingly supernatural powers dubbed Angel of Dust by the media.

“The creative collaboration of RZA and Ghostface has stood the test of time through our music,” says RZA. “Now the opportunity to put our creative energies together onto the silver screen has arisen and I’m turbocharged. Bong Bong!”

Wu-Tang Clan will write an original soundtrack for the film and RZA will write a score. No release date has been set for the movie.

Meanwhile, “Of Mics and Men” will premiere May 10 at 9p on Showtime. Watch the trailer below.
