The Man WIth The Iron Fist Nabs Russell Crowe & Lucy Liu

Things are looking good for The Man With The Iron Fist the debut film from Rza. The rapper/composer/actor turned director has started production on his kung-fu flick in China. He'll star in the lead role and direct the film with mentor Eli Roth producing on location. FilmBizAsia reports Rza has landed Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Daniel Wu and Byron Mann (The Corrupter, Street Fighter) in supporting roles. I wouldn't be shocked to see Eli Roth also take a role in the film. Crowe and Rza worked together on American Gangster and Next Three Days I assume they developed a good relationship on the set. Rza will most likely also work on the film's score which should be stellar. Considering he did some impressive music for Kill Bill Vol.1 and Ghost Dog.
