‘The Man With The Iron Fists’ Gets an Eye-Popping First Image

Universal

RZA’s a fixture in the hip-hop community, though film nerds know him from his performances in films like ‘American Gangster’ and ‘Repo Men.’ He’s making the move to the director’s chair later this year with ‘The Man with the Iron Fists,’ and the first promotional image from the historical thriller is eye-catching, to say the least.

AICN posted this pic, which shows a warrior separating an adversary from his eye. Awesome. The genre film is set in feudal China, where a blacksmith who make weapons for his villagers is forced into a position where he has to put his skills to good use. And if the above image is any indication, we’re in for some ‘Grindhouse’-level carnage.

Prior to this image dropping, most of us were impressed by the cast RZA had lured for ‘Iron Fists.’ Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung and the legendary Pam Grier are on board, while RZA is working from a script by Eli Roth. You can see, we’re drifting into Quentin Tarantino territory here … and that’s not a bad thing.

We’ll wait to fully jump on the ‘Iron Fists’ bandwagon until we see a trailer and get the film’s tone. But for now, it looks grisly. Is that what you were hoping for? Share your thoughts!
