When you have names like RZA, Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino together in the same project, you know you’re going to be in for a treat. With The Man with the Iron Fists, RZA brings his love of Chinese martial arts flicks and gets a crack at directing his first movie. Eli Roth is helping with writing and producing for the project, with Quentin Tarantino producing.
The budget is reported to be around $20 million, and they were able to get some big names like Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu. Cung Le (MMA fighter), Byron Mann (Street Fighter movie), Rick Yune (The Fast and the Furious), David Bautista (WWE), Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch), and Pam Grier (Foxy Brown) also star in the movie, with RZA playing as the blacksmith.
