Thanks to SnoutyPig, we have the trailer for RZA’s directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fists. Co-written by RZA and Eli Roth, the film centers around a blacksmith in feudal China (played by RZA) who reluctantly comes to the defense of his small village. Clearly, we’re not going for historical accuracy here, because China had its borders locked up tight to foreigners, and clearly, neither RZA nor Russell Crowe are Chinese… but if that’s something you think needs to be nitpicked about, how about shutting up for those of us who know how to lighten the fuck up? This shit looks sweeeeet.
The film stars Russell Crowe, Cung Le, Lucy Liu, Byron Mann, RZA, Rick Yune, David Bautista, and Jamie Chung. Corey Yuen was the fight choreographer. For whatever reason, it doesn’t have a release date yet.
