Hip Hop legends the Wu-Tang Clan will all play themselves in the upcoming Ol' Dirty Bastard biopic - Dirty White Boy.

Michael K Williams, who appears as ODB in the movie, told the New York Daily News that the producers 'have no desire to cast any actors as the Wu-Tang.'

Williams, best known for his TV roles as Omar Little in The Wire and Chalky White in Boardwalk Empire, went on to add that 'we need all hands on deck,' with all surviving members of the Wu-Tang Clan, including RZA, Method Man, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, all expected to feature.

He added: "There's going to be some comedy, but we're not playing to that.

"It's going to be shot as a straight piece, no buffoonery, for lack of a better word.

"It's only going to cover the last two years of his life when he was released from prison to the day he died. It's just an insight into what he struggled with in the public eye."

The story is reported to focus on the unusual relationship between the rapper, real name Russell Jones, and a 22-year-old VH1 production asistant who eventually became his manager.

Dirty White Boy is scheduled to be released sometime in 2013.
