In hip hop make you go hmmm news, rap legend RZA told XXL magazine that he wants Chris Brown to play the role of Bruce Leroy in his remake of he cult classic “The Last Dragon”. He had Brown in mind before he allegedly kung fu chopped Rihanna a few times in an altercation earlier this year.
I holla’d at Chris and he seemed very interested,” said RZA while speaking to XXL. “I never—I didn’t holla at Rihanna. But I holla’d at Chris one day. You know we came across each other in the studio, and I saw him at one of those award shows, and I said, ‘I really got you at the top of the list to bring this character back’ and he said—that he actually loved the character. He said he loved Bruce Lee and he’s a fan of THE LAST DRAGON. I was like, wow, that’s cool cause there’s four of us that votes on it, but my vote is on him.”
Now this is were it gets interesting. Rihanna has been rumored to be the choice to play Laura Charles, Bruce Leroy’s love interest in the original movie. Now as we all look back at the original I don’t think Bruce Leroy laid a finger on Miss Charles, but hey this is a remake, and maybe RZA has something different in mind.
Rihanna better not step on Chris Brown’s Converse in the flick.
