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.
