Hollywood is wasting no time claiming the RZA as one of their own, as the rapper-turned-director has just signed on for two more directing gigs -- a Ghengis Khan biopic and the action thriller 'No Man's Land' -- and 'The Man With the Iron Fists' hasn't even premiered yet. That's some clout.
'The Man with the Iron Fists' has been pummeling us with character-based teasers, and today we get two more. One for Russell Crowe's character Jack Knife, and one for David Bautista's character Brass Body. Watching both promos in quick succession will get co-writer/director/star RZA's music stuck in your head.
RZA's directorial debut 'The Man with the Iron Fists' will be hitting theaters November 2, and Universal is gearing up to get you familiar with all the main players. Yesterday they released a teaser for Cung Le's character The Bronze Lion, and today they want you acquainted with Lucy Liu's Madame Blossom, while RZA has stepped up to talk about the movie.
When the RZA announced that he was going to direct his own kung fu movie, we knew that he was the right man for the job. The Wu-Tang Clan and many of his other projects would reference a number of classic samurai and kung fu films, and watching the red-band trailer for his 'The Man With The Iron Fists,' it's clear he knows his genre.
Remember that grisly promotional image from RZA’s ‘The Man With the Iron Fist’ that we shared with you? Of course you do. It actually showed a warrior getting his eyeball punched out. That’s pretty hard to forget. On the heels of that pic, we’re now seeing the film’s official poster, which we’re sharing with you below.
