RZA has found an unlikely costar for his The Man with the Iron Fist in the form of Russell Crowe, reports E! Online.
Crowe, who worked with RZA on American Gangster, will play opposite the musician/actor for the period Kung Fu film, set to shoot in Shanghai this December. RZA will write (along with coproducer Eli Roth), direct and star as a blacksmith in feudal China. Crowe’s specific role is unknown at this time, but RZA indicates that he’ll see his fair share of on-screen fighting.
Despite a similar title, this film is not connected with the recently-announced Marvel property, Iron Fist.
