man_with_the_iron_fists_ver8Opening in theaters this weekend, THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS is an epic kung fu tale set in 19th-century China and centers on a village blacksmith who gets caught in the middle of a war over a trove of fabled gold treasure. Co-writer (with producer ELI ROTH) and director RZA is joined on screen by LUCY LIU (as a brothel madam) and Academy Award-winning actor RUSSELL CROWE (as a ruthless mercenary).  Known primarily as a member of the hard-core rap group WU-TANG CLAN, RZA is making his directorial debut with this project and reached out to RUSSELL CROWE for help. During our recent interview, RZA talked about the casting CROWE and why he thinks the actor took the job. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
