(AllHipHop News) The first promotional shot from producer, rapper, and actor RZA’s directorial debut, The Man With the Iron Fists, has hit the net.
RZA revealed the image from his Kung-Fu flick late last night (June 27). He tweeted, “Giving u 1st look at snapshot of my trailer ‘Iron Fist’ comin n 2 days.”
The Man With the Iron Fists was co-written by RZA and Hostel and Cabin Fever director, Eli Roth.
The $20 million production, which was filmed on-location in China at the beginning of last year, has a highly-respected cast in Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Pam Grier, Dave Batista, RZA, and a number of high-profile martial arts stars from Asia like Chia Hui Liu, Rick Yune, Ka-Yan Leung, and Kuan Tai Chen.
Produced by Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth, The Man With the Iron Fists stars RZA as blacksmith who is tasked with defending his village in feudal China.
A theatrical trailer for The Man With the Iron Fists, which is being produced by Roth and Academy Award-winning director Quentin Tarantino, is expected to be released later this week.
This will be RZA and Crowe’s third film collaboration, following the release of 2007′s American Gangster and 2010′s The Next Three Days. RZA will next be seen as Blind Master in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and is also rumored to have an unspecified role in Tarantino’s Django Unchained, which will be released on Christmas Day.
