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.
Just yesterday we saw a new trailer for director RZA’s crazy-lookin’ kung fu film The Man with the Iron Fists by way of a character trailer for Cung Le’s Bronze Lion, and today it’s Lucy Liu’s turn. The story follows a group of warriors, assassins, heroes, and villains who unite to take down a clan traitor in order to prevent their own destruction. This trailer centers on Liu’s Madame Blossom character, showing off some impressive fight sequences and a fun tease of the relationship she has with Russell Crowe’s character. The first featurette for the film has also been released, in which RZA talks about his lifelong love of martial arts movies and the impact of producer Quentin Tarantino.

A new trailer from writer/director/star RZA’s kung-fu action flick The Man with the Iron Fists has dropped and it features UFC fighter Cung Le in character as the Bronze Lion. The story follows a group of warriors, assassins, heroes and villains who unite to take down a clan traitor in order to prevent their own destruction. RZA’s directorial debut made my most anticipated list and I’m encouraged by the crazier and crazier footage being released. If you missed the previous red-band trailers, you can get caught up here and here.

A batch of new images from director RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists has landed online. Produced by Quentin Tarantino and written by RZA and Eli Roth, the film takes place in feudal China and centers on a small village’s weapon-maker who must defend its peoples. We’ve already seen two trailers that promise some crazy violence, and these images don’t disappoint. I’m eager to see this fairy tale-like genre mash-up not only because of the caliber of talent behind the scenes, but also because of the eclectic cast RZA has gathered onscreen: Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Pam Grier, David Bautista, and Rick Yune.

A new red-band trailer for RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists has landed online. Though it’s not wildly different from the film’s first red-band trailer, this one does show a bit more of the supporting cast of characters and some other scenes of stylishly impressive violence. Most importantly, though, The Man with the Iron Fists still looks absolutely batshit crazy. The film was directed by RZA based on a script he wrote with Eli Roth, with Quentin Tarantino onboard as the film’s producer. The story takes place in feudal China and centers on a small village’s weapon-maker who must defend its peoples.

Hey, everyone: remember that trailer for The Man with the Iron Fists? The one with all the gory Kung Fu hijinks, murderous sex workers and other EYE-popping spectacle? Of course you do. Most of us pledged to lay EYEs on the film as soon as Russell Crowe inexplicably (but quite awesomely) appeared as a cowboy. Well, get out your date-circling Sharpie, because we’ve gotten word that Universal is EYEing a November 2, 2012 release date for its grindhousey martial arts epic. The directorial debut of The Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, Fists sees a clan dispute in feudal China erupting into an all-out melee between some truly badass warriors. Co-written by Eli Roth (Hostel) and produced by Quentin Tarantino, it’s graced with an eclectic international cast led by RZA himself in the title role, as well as Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Pam Grier, Rick Yune, Cung Le, Daniel Wu, Byron Mann and former WWE wrestler Dave Bautista.
While the promising flick is currently slated for early November, do keep an EYE on local listings in case it’s violently dislodged and sent careening across the schedule. Hit the jump to watch the film’s trailer.
