RZA Wants Rihanna for ‘Last Dragon’ Remake

In putting the pieces together to remake the 1985 classic film ‘The Last Dragon,’ Wu-Tang Clan member RZA who is co-producing the film with actor Samuel L. Jackson, said he’d like to cast pop sensation Rihanna to take the role of video show host/singer Laura Charles. The role was originated by 1980’s singer/actress Vanity of Vanity 6, while Taimak Guarriello played the lead character, Bruce Leroy (aka Leroy Green).

While several female artists have been looked at for the part, RZA says he’s rooting for Rihanna. He also revealed that he and the filmmakers were in the process of finding a new-millennium Bruce Leroy, but wouldn’t say who they’re currently considering. (Wonder if Chris Brown is available?)
