The American actor/rapper/director will be making WMD trouble for co-star Paul Walker in "Brick Mansions," a US remake of Luc Besson's production "District 13," reveals The Hollywood Reporter.

After "The Man with the Iron Fists," an homage to the kung fu genre, RZA is returning to the action screen in "Brick Mansions." Taking up Bibi Naceri's role in the original 2004 French film by Pierre Morel, RZA plays a gangsta who steals a weapon of mass destruction.

In "Brick Mansions," currently shooting in Montreal, the cop (Paul Walker) on his trail teams up with a small-time dealer (reprised by French actor David Belle) to avert the WMD blast. Camille Delamarre, editor of "Colombiana" and "Taken 2," will be directing the film, which is co-produced by Luc Besson.
