We've been hearing about Grammy-winning music producer, musician, emcee and actor RZA's (Californication) long-gestating martial arts movie, The Man With the Iron Fists, since 2008, and now the first riotous, raucous Red-band trailer for the movie has finally been released. Co-written (with Eli Roth) and directed by RZA, The Man With the Iron Fists was inspired by classic action-adventure kung-fu movies like The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978) and features an eclectic ensemble cast that includes Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Pam Grier and Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe. Here's the synopsis:
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.
