Russell Crowe is The Man With The Iron Fist


Russell Crowe and RZA are joining forces again on new kung fu film The Man With The Iron Fist.

No, not a sequel to The Man In The Iron Mask , but a swish action film co-written and directed by RZA himself.

Talking with E! Online , the Grammy award-winning rapper seems pretty chuffed to have landed his former American Gangster co-star for the movie.

“Russell’s gonna be the baddest man alive. That man is in fighting shape. That man will knock you out,” he said. “It’s nerve-wracking. [ Crowe's ] a master of the craft. I’m quite sure that I may learn something from him.”

On his own role, RZA added that he’ll play “a weapons-making village blacksmith in feudal China”. Eli Roth is producing, and filming is set to, uh, kick off in Shanghai this December.

Josh Winning has worn a lot of hats over the years. Contributing Editor at Total Film, writer for SFX, and senior film writer at the Radio Times. Josh has also penned a novel about mysteries and monsters, is the co-host of a movie podcast, and has a library of pretty phenomenal stories from visiting some of the biggest TV and film sets in the world. He would also like you to know that he "lives for cat videos..." Don't we all, Josh. Don't we all.
