- THE MAN WITH THE IRON FIST GETS SUCKERPUNCHED
|Jamie Chung in SuckerPunch|
ComingSoon.net got a chance to talk to Jamie Chung on the set of 7500, coming next August, and they asked her about starring in RZA's The Man with the Iron Fists.
"The original cut was four hours long and RZA was like, 'Let's turn it into two movies! [Producer] Eli [Roth] was like, 'Eh...'" she said about the project.
She added: "They're really excited and I have complete faith in RZA, he's a genius when it comes to these things and he knows the genre so well. So, it's cut down to an hour and a half. Now he's working on the music. Everyone is stoked but it will have that cool feel like '36th Chamber of Shaolin' or 'Five Deadly Venoms.' It's definitely a delicacy and Russell Crowe is doing some amazing things that you would never see him do in film. It's a fun movie. I think it may come out in August."
Quentin Tarantino also produced the film, which centers on a blacksmith (RZA) in feudal China who makes weapons for a small village. He is put in the position where he must defend himself and his fellow villagers. Lucy Liu and Pam Grier also star.
