The music world’s porn invasion continues.

With A Better Tomorrow finished and Once Upon A Time In Shaolin headed to the auction house, Wu-Tang mastermind RZA is returning his focus to the world of film.

Next up: a co-starring role in an untitled biopic about Latina pornstar Vanessa del Rio alongside Drea De Matteo and Taryn Manning; The Single Moms Club‘s Zulay Henao has been tabbed to play del Rio. Helmed by music video director Thomas Mignone, the film “follows the wildly exhilarating life of the legendary adult film icon Vanessa del Rio, set against the backdrop of organized crime-controlled Times Square during the 70s & 80s.”

Previously, RZA wrote and directed 2012’s The Man with the Iron Fists and has acted in dozens of mainstream roles; he’s been working on a couple Ol’ Dirty Bastard biopics for years.
