RZA To Star Alongside Russell Crowe & Direct New Movie 'The Man With The Iron Fist'


Wu Tang Clan's RZA is set to bring his kung flu flick, The Man With The Iron Fist to the big screen.

He has been working on the project for the last five years with Eli Roth and director Quentin Tarantino.

It obviously pays to have friends in high places, because superstar actor Russell Crowe has signed on to play a role alongside RZA in the flick, which will be directed by RZA himself, according to E!.

"I won't spoil it for you, but Russell's gonna be the baddest man alive. That man is in fighting shape. That man will knock you out," Rza told E!

RZA has been building his acting resume over the last several years with roles in American Gangster, Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, and The Box. He's also worked on soundtracks for Kill Bill, Blade Trinity and Ghost Dog.

Universal is backing his latest project with a budget of $20 million.

No word yet on a release date.

Good look! He's really been focused on the movie thing. I hope the movie turns out well. I remember RZA from Derailed. He was good and so was the movie, but I heard it didn't do well at the box office.
