YOU CAN’T SPELL KUNG FU WITHOUT F AND U:  In nineteenth century China, a blacksmith who makes elaborate weapons for a small village is forced to unite with warriors and assassins to protect the village and defeat a traitor who threatens to destroy them all.

In May, RC shared the news of RZA‘s feature film directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fists.  I’d hoped for a trailer and an official synopsis and the trailer has been released!  The film stars Russell Crowe, Cung Le, Lucy Liu, Byron Mann, RZA, Rick Yune, David Bautista, and Jamie Chung.  The full cast is as follows:

  • Russell Crowe as Jacknife
  • Cung Le as Bronze Lion
  • Lucy Liu as Madame Blossom
  • Byron Mann as Silver Lion
  • RZA as a blacksmith who channels an ancient energy to turn himself into a living weapon
  • Rick Yune as Zen Yi
  • David Bautista as Brass Body
  • Jamie Chung as Lady Silk
  • Pam Grier
  • Daniel Wu as Poison Dagger
  • Jin Au-Yeung as Chan

The Man with the Iron Fists is written by RZA and Eli Roth; the Action-Director is Corey Yuen.  The movie is slated for release later this year.  Check out the trailer:[youtube id=”FV9tHBF8mh8″ width=”600″ height=”350″]What are your thoughts?  Will you go see this film?
