Jamie Chung Talks Quentin Tarantino-produced Kung Fu Movie THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS Directed by RZA

     November 28, 2011

While on the set of Takashi Shimizu’s upcoming aviation thriller 7500 I got to sit down with a few other journalists and Jamie Chung to discuss her role. We’ll have the full interview and a set visit write up closer to the film’s release. Today we have a short update from Chung on Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and his Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino produced Kung-Fu film, The Man with the Iron Fists. The movie takes place in feudal China and centers on a small village’s weapon-maker who must defend its peoples. RZA wrote the pic alongside Roth, and the cast also includes Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, and Pam Grier. Chung discussed the film’s original four-hour cut, the idea of splitting it in half, RZA’s famous obsession with obscure Asian action films and reveals that they’re eyeing an August 2012 release. Hit the jump to see what she had to say.

jamie-chung-imageQ: Can you tell us a bit about The Man with the Iron Fists?

Chung: The original cut was four hours long and RZA was like, ‘Let’s turn it into two movies!’ and Eli [Roth] was like, ‘…No…’ so they’re really excited and I have complete faith in RZA. He’s a complete genius when it comes to these things and he knows the genre so well. So it’s cut down to an hour and a half and it’s picture locked and now he’s working on the music. So I’m pretty exited and everyone’s pretty stoked. But it will have that kind of cult feel. I don’t think everyone loved, you know, 36 Chambers of Shaolin or…is it Five Deadly Venoms? It’s definitely a delicacy. It’s still fun and awesome and Russell Crowe’s doing some crazy things that you would never think you’d see him do […] and I think it may come out in August.
