The drama series, which is in development at Starz, is based on the 'Black Samurai' novels by Marc Olden and the 1977 blaxploitation movie that starred Jim Kelly.

The premium cable network is teaming with Common, RZA and Jerry Bruckheimer to develop Marc Olden's book series as a scripted TV series. Common is attached to star, while RZA and Bruckheimer will executive produce.

The drama follows Robert Sand (Common), a highly trained American Army Ranger whose life is transformed when he meets a legendary Japanese master who invites him to train as a samurai. After his beloved sensei and samurai brothers are killed by mercenaries, Sand is thrust on a worldwide journey of both revenge and self-discovery.

'Black Samurai' will be a mash up of the spy and martial arts genres and infused with the heart, soul and music of Common and the Wu-Tang Clan, creating a modern-day international action star.
