After releasing successful solo efforts late last year, part-time Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man and hip-hop heavyweight Redman are looking to become multimedia moguls in the near future.
Since completing stints on the Jay-Z fronted Hard Knock Life Tour, the two have been recording tracks together for a new joint album, and the duo is now setting its sights on the silver screen.
According to Method Man, who’s already earned credits in such films as “187” and “Cop Land,” several scripts have been floated in front of the duo, and it’s just a matter of time before he and Redman make a film together.
“We have a lot of people that are interested in working with us,”
Method Man told the MTV Radio Network, “which is good, ’cause that means they’re actually looking [at us]. Right now it’s all up in the air. But I guarantee if it’s not even in a movie with the both of us, our own movie, we’re going
to be in something. I guarantee that, ’cause you can’t hold talent like this back for very long.” [RealAudio]
On the musical tip, Redman and Method Man have contributed one of their collaborations, “Tear It Off,” to the upcoming soundtrack for the new L.L. Cool J film, “In Too Deep.” That album is due in stores on August 17.
