Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and ELI ROTH. Making his feature-film debut as a director, co-writer and leading man, RZA—alongside an exciting international cast led by RUSSELL CROWE as Jack Knife and LUCY LIU as Madam Blossom—tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-takes-all battle for a fortune in gold.
Blending astonishing martial arts sequences from some of the masters of this world, with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop’s most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
Joining Crowe, Liu and RZA as the Blacksmith are RICK YUNE (Ninja Assassin, Die Another Day) as the Blacksmith’s warrior-in-arms, Zen Yi, aka The X-Blade; JAMIE CHUNG (The Hangover Part II, Sucker Punch) as the love of the Blacksmith’s life, Lady Silk; CUNG LE (Fighting, Dragon Eyes) as the duplicitous traitor who threatens to usher in the destruction of Jungle Village, Bronze Lion; DAVID BAUTISTA (upcoming Riddick, House of the Rising Sun) as the indestructible mercenary Brass Body; BYRON MANN (A Stranger in Paradise, Motherland) as the treacherous soldier who claims to be the rightful clan heir, Silver Lion; and DANIEL WU (The Last Supper, The Banquet), China’s biggest star, as the traitor who keeps his secrets as close as his enemies, Poison Dagger.
