All of this news happens to be dropping this week, when his new film that he directed The Man With The Iron Fists is going to be released!
According to reports, The Khan biopic has been in the works for years, with John Milius (of Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn fame), who wrote the script and is executive producing, originally on board to direct.
Khan, one of the great military figures in world history, is the ruler who united the Mongol tribes and conquered great parts of Asia and Eastern Europe in the early 13th century. The story will be told from the point of view of Khan’s son and grandson.
No Man’s Land is being produced by Bill Mechanic and his Pandemonium production banner as well as Reginald Hudlin, a producer on Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained.
The film centers on a man who steals a powerful criminal’s diamond that soon proves to be far more valuable than initially thought.
