Cool RZA's new film post Iron Fist, "Happy!"

http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=41465

Wu-Tang-Clan frontman turned director RZA it teaming with writer Grant Morrison and producer Reginald Hudlin to adapt "Happy!," the new crime story/Christmas fable by Morrison and Darick Robertson. Heat Vision reports Morrison will write the script himself.

Debuting late last month from Image Comics, the miniseries follows Nick Sax, a corrupt ex-cop and hitman who, after being gravely injured, is suddenly able to see Happy, a sickening-sweet blue cartoon horse who won't let anything get him down. With only days to go before Christmas, Sax teams with Happy to save the life of a troubled kid and maybe -- just maybe -- find redemption. (Comic Book Resources gave the first issue four stars.)

"I was ambushed by this track by The Hollies, the '60s band, and it was like the most saccharine, sweetie pie music you can imagine – 'Pegasus The Flying Horse,'" Morrison explained to CBR in July. "I like quite a few songs from the band’s psychedelic mid-period but this is just a hideous piece of twee. It even has this neighing sound as the last few bars play out! [Laughter] It's so sugary and weird and although it‘s probably about LSD, the lyrics of the middle 8 section bring a weird 'pervy uncle' presence to the whole sordid affair. You can look it up on YouTube if you want because I just can't do it justice. But I was listening to this music and thought, 'Imagine the most cynical, fucked up man in the world having to deal with this -- with a sickeningly upbeat little cartoon character -- each trapped with the other.' What would it be like if the Bad Lieutenant teamed up with Pegasus the Flying Horse? By this time, I knew the Happy the Horse would be tiny. And it struck me that I could throw 'Christmas story' in with this as well. I've always wanted to have a go at a classic Christmas story like 'It's A Wonderful Life' or 'A Christmas Carol' but with characters drawn from the shock headlines of the 21st century. So this idea seemed to lend itself to that and it gave me a chance to do the kind of wider, symbolic pop cult critique that I like. It just grew from there."

"Happy!" marks the first project from the new partnership announced at Comic-Con International between RZA, who makes his directorial debut next month with "The Man With the Iron Fists," and Hudlin, the former television executive and Marvel comics writer who's producing Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."
