A large batch of impressive images from director RZA’s upcoming martial arts flick The Man with the Iron Fists have made their way online, according to Collider. The film, which was co-written by Hostel mastermind Eli Roth, features a number of talented international actors including Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Rick Yune, and Daniel Wu. For fans of old school kung fu movies, RZA’s action-packed endeavor looks to be a solid effort.
The previously-released trailers seemed to suggest that The Man with the Iron Fists will be a violent, martial arts-laden production filled with all sorts of tightly-choreographed fight sequences. The latest batch of images from the flick reinforce this notion, highlighting the film’s enormous cast of extremely colorful characters.
Although the film has been in the works for what seems like ages, lots of people are still unfamiliar with the movie’s story. If you’re one of those individuals, the following synopsis may help clear the air a bit:
“Since his arrival in China’s Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans’ brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.”
In addition to the aforementioned thespians, the Quentin Tarantino-presented The Man with the Iron Fists also stars Jamie Chung, Pam Grier, Dave Bautista, Byron Mann, and a slew of international talent. As of this writing, RZA’s bloody martial arts flick is scheduled to spin kick North American moviegoers on November 2. A handful of stills from the movie have been embedded below.
