Rick Yune, Cung Le and Byron Mann Talk THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS

     November 4, 2012


After years of work, Wu-Tang Clan member Rza’s writing and directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fists is finally hitting screens on November 2nd. The film, co-written by Eli Roth and presented by Quentin Tarantino is a cross-cultural mashup of 70s Kung Fu, 90s gangsta rap and 00s comic book logic. Some of the coolest elements of the film come from Rick Yune’s knife-wielding Zen-Yi and the villainous duo of Byron Mann and Cung Le, playing the power hungry Silver Lion and Bronze Lion.

Last weekend Collider sat down with Yune, Le and Mann back stage at the House of Blues Sunset to discuss the film. During the interview we talked about character histories, sibling rivalries and get a few hints at how three-and-a-half weeks of shooting turned into a two-minute montage.  Hit the jump to watch.

Rick Yune, Cung Le and Byron Mann:

  • 00:00 – 1:40 – Before the movie, where did each of your characters come from?
  • 1:40 – 2:25 – What caused the sibling rivalry that fuels most of the story?
  • 2:25 – 3:40 – What does the Lion Clan want with the gold?
  • 3:40 – 4:05 – How much of this backstory can we expect to see in the director’s cut? Mann explains the 3 ½ weeks of cut footage.
