RZA’s love of martial arts movies is well documented. Hell, Wu Tang’s entire career was fraught with references to kung-fu movies and is an illustration of their passion for the genre. RZA loves kung-fu movies so much he made one of his own, “The Man With the Iron Fists”. The rapper tweeted the first photo from his directorial debut, and it is gory, violent, and very, very promising.
RZA co-wrote the script for the period martial arts picture with Eli Roth, who also serves as producer. Under their guidance “The Man With the Iron Fists” put together quite the cast, with Russell Crowe, Pam Grier, Jamie Cheung, and Lucy Liu. And that’s in addition to RZA himself.
[T]he film centers on a blacksmith (RZA) in feudal China who makes weapons for a small village. He is put in the position where he must defend himself and his fellow villagers.
You might want to follow RZA on Twitter, because he says the trailer for “The Man With the Iron Fists” will drop on Thursday. I can hardly wait.
Check out the photo for yourself.
