'The Man With the Iron Fists' Revealed with a Red-Band Trailer
Quentin Tarantino presenting a martial arts/action movie co-written by RZA and Eli Roth, and directed by and starring RZA? Is... is this a thing? Yes, yes it so is. Oh, it also stars Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, and has a guy getting his eyeball punched out. Yup!
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.
I'm sorry, I'm just way to big a sucker for these sorts of movies. This looks way awesome in my opinion; and while it could easily turn out to be way not awesome, I have high hopes.
