Anything presented by Quentin Tarantino is definitely worth checking out, and “The Man With the Iron Fists” is no exception. Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA has taken on triple-threat duties, directing, co-writing and starring in this project, and we are psyched to show off an exclusive image from the film.
Those rich pink, red and gold background colors are absolutely striking, and the blurred effect definitely lends itself to the fast-paced action expected from a Kung Fu movie. Not sure I would be as calm as Lucy Liu seems if I only had a fan (albeit with spikes) to protect me from a guy wielding a claw on a stick, however, as we saw in the red-band trailer released last month, we already know she can definitely hold her own in the midst of action and extreme violence.
RZA will play a weapon-crafting blacksmith in a 19th century Chinese village who joins the fight to protect his community against threatening forces. The film was co-written by Eli Roth and also stars Russell Crowe. Plus, since RZA knows good music, there will also be a rocking soundtrack. (We’ll be talking to RZA at Comic-Con, and you better believe we’ll get all the scoop!)
