RZA's "The Man With The Iron Fist" Film Picked Up By Universal

The Abbot's film project will see the light of day, new reports indicate.

The RZA's various extra-curricular interests are well-documented. Aside from producing Hip Hop albums, The Abbot has scored movies like Ghost Dog and Kill Bill, acted in films such as Derailed and American Gangster. RZA has even dabbled in painting.

Now, RZA will see another project of his come to fruition. According to firstshowing.net, The Man With the Iron Fist, a movie which the producer wrote with Eli Roth, will be picked up by Universal, who will finance and distribute the project.

The movie, which will be a "stylized martial arts film," will star RZA as a blacksmith in a village in feudal China. RZA will also direct and score the film.

"While I was away shooting Inglourious Basterds, RZA went to China to shoot test footage on his own, with all the choreography," explained Roth, who wrote, produced and direct the Hostel series. "It was very visual and I think he will bring to life a script that mixes Kung Fu with a spaghetti western mindset and a Hip Hop influence. RZA has imagined every tribe, every fighting style, every costume," continued Roth. "He knows Kung Fu like I know horror."

Filming for The Man With the Iron Fist is expected to begin later this year.

    Probably the most imaginative mind in Hip-Hop. One of the great American artists of our time. Don't sleep on his new book. It's great in a lot of different ways.

    The RZA is a compendium of knowledge on Kung-Fu and classic Hong Kong Cinema. His knowledge on these subject is just as expansive as his knowledge of Hip-Hop and music in general. Dude is brilliant. I'll support this film to the utmost, I'm excited, I love Kung-Fu joints. Peace to the God, Bong Bong!

  • kush nap

    i bet the movie is gonna be insane. rza a visionary talent. classic catalog still strecthing himself tryin new things. his books been great. hes gotten some good acting credits. his movie scores are incredible, he doesnt get the credit he deserves for that. its not easy work. i could see rza becoming a star director. i just hope he still loves making hip hop.
