Russell Crowe Joins RZA's Martial Arts Film

Posted: September 14th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Russell Crowe Joins RZASubmit Comment
Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA has been working with Eli Roth and somewhat with Quentin Tarantino to develop a martial arts film, called "The Man With the Iron Fist, that the rapper has written and is planning to direct. It has nothing to do with the Marvel character.

Now comes word that RZA was able to talk Russell Crowe into joining his project. The two have previously co-starred in "American Gangster" and even recorded a song together that was supposed to be included on the film's soundtrack. Producers eventually decided against it. The duo will next appear in "The Next Three Days" thriller.

In "Iron Fist," RZA will play a weapons-making village blacksmith in feudal China. "I won't spoil it for you, but Russell's gonna be the baddest man alive," the rapper told E! Online. "That man is in fighting shape. That man will knock you out."

The plan is to begin filming in December in Shanghai with a budget of $20 million. Roth is both a co-writer and co-producer of the movie.

Unless they have a martial arts developed by Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, Virgin Mobil, Cingular or Boost, then Russell will not have been trained in the proper martial art :

The last Russell to learn martial arts was a Cosby Kid and he got his ass tore up from the floor up!

A black Chinaman blacksmith ? Only in the movies, bro.

If this does well, maybe it'll reboot Black Belt Theater and all those badly dubbed flicks from the 70s! Yeah, okay RZA ...

I'm game!

Ahh Master Crow, you are truly a masta at throwing the phone, never in the Shaolin history has it ever been done like that. Go forth my student and show the world how you can throw the phone. Also, f*ck many asian gurls in ass.

@rambo- if not that have to have his immortal line in it somewhere.

Also, if he is fighting in China won't they have to change the lyrics to his song "Fightin' round the World"

Awesome!!! Afro Samurai starring a white guy :) Bizarro World has nothing on Hollywood.

Paradoxes aside, I think this sounds like a badass concept. RZA is about as creative as it gets and Crowe is still the man. If he can come close to delivering the same type of performance as Denzel's blind swordsman in Book of Eli, this film will be the sh*t :)

I would kill to see Russell Crowe vs Christian Bale. Of course, to make it great, Crowe would be given about 20 phones for ammuntion, and there would be a guy hired to hover annoying close to Bale in the middle of his scenes, mess with the lights and sh*t. Maybe for the finale, we could throw Mel Gibson in there and tell him Bale and Crowe are Jewish.

Is there anywhere I can find the song that Crowe and RZA recorded? Regardless of how bad it might be, I'd like to check it out, sounds pretty funny.
