The most unusual film projects pop up in the most unexpected of places. The quick-eyed gang at /film caught a chat between Billboard and The RZA in which the musican / actor dropped a hint about a movie project he was working on. "RZA has developed a martial arts film with Hollywood pal Eli Roth called The Man with the Iron Fist, which he says has "the blessing" of his 'teacher,' Quentin Tarantino."
The combination of those names with "martial arts film" is what had people buzzing. Or at least, those who were dedicated enough to be online providing movie news over the holiday weekend. (Salute them now.) CHUD's Devin Faraci
decided to get to the bottom of the story, and e-mailed Roth to find out what was up. It's even cooler than the Billboard
quote would have you believe. The Man with the Iron Fist
was written entirely by RZA (and has nothing to do with the Marvel character of a similar moniker), and will be his directorial debut.
