RZA's New Kungfu Movie Will Turn Into Cult Hits, Producer Says


RZA


Producer Eli Roth is convinced that his new project on kungfu movie starring Wu-Tang Clan's RZA will become 'something spectacular, unique, and original.'

Rapper RZA's new kung-fu film looks set to become a major movie franchise - if producer Eli Roth has his way. The filmmaker and "Inglourious Basterds" star has teamed up with the Wu-Tang Clan star, real name Robert Diggs, to make "The Man With The Iron Fist" - and Roth is convinced his pal will be able to turn the film into a series of cult hits.

He tells WENN, "RZA's one of the smartest, most creative people I have ever met. He's obsessed with movies the same way Quentin [Tarantino] and I are, and his knowledge of the kung fu genre is nothing short of astounding. He knows everything, and everyone in it, and he's on a mission to reinvent the genre he loves."

"We worked together on the script all summer, and we have watched and discussed many, many movies. He's already got the soundtrack figured out. He understands every detail of the world. It's going to be something spectacular, unique, and original that stays true both to the genre and to RZA's fans. It's a really fun script. We see this film as the first step in a franchise."

    I can't wait to see this. Haven't seen a good Kung-Fu flick since Iron Monkey in 2003.
