Eighties Kung Fu and hip-hop fans have been drooling in anticipation for the RZA’s directorial debut in The Man With The Iron Fists. The Wu Tang Clan member has been a huge fan of old school Kung Fu flicks such as The 36th Chamber of Shaolin and The Five Venoms for decades. If anyone would be able to bring back the old school feel and vibe of those classics, the RZA would be just that person.
In addition to the lyrical master taking the helm, Eli Roth has co-written the script and will be presented by Quentin Tarantino (whom is pretty familiar with Kung Fu and Samurai films himself). The cast includes vets Lucy Liu, Russell Crowe and a slew of great supporters in Jamie Chung, Dave Bautista, Cung Le and others. The soundtrack will have an all-star cast of hip hop artists such as Kanye West, Pusha T, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah and Talib Kweli.
The film will be released to theaters November 2, 2012. Check out some of the new images below:
