Holy crap this looks awesome! Everyone knows that the Wu-Tang Clan are massive fans of martial arts movies and RZA in particular is insanely knowledgable on the subject, and he is living the dream having directed, starred in and co-written 'The Man with the Iron Fists'.

I think my favorite word in the last 4 months has been 'badass' and this movie looks to typify that word. Star studded, mystical with superb special effects, sets and locations - this is ticking all the boxes so far. (but then again, so did Sucker Punch, and we all remember how that turned out.) RZA has taken charge of the soundtrack too and the movie will feature new music from The Black Keys, Kanye West, RZA, Wiz Khalifa and of course The Wu-Tang Clan.

Starring Russell Crowe, Cung Le, Lucy Liu (swoon!), Byron Mann, RZA, Rick Yune, David Bautista (the WWE wrestler), Jamie Chung.

Due to punch cinemas in the face this October! Can't freaking wait!



Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZA-alongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu-tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all.

Since his arrival in China's Jungle Village, the town's blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans' brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.

Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop's most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
