THE MAN WITH THE IRON FIST (Poster and Trailer)


Following the first gory shot earlier this week, and the poster yesterday, IGN has now revealed the Red Band trailer for The Man with the Iron Fists. Check it out below!

Quentin Tarantino presents The Man with the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZA-alongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu-tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all.

Since his arrival in China's Jungle Village, the town's blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans' brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.

The Man with the Iron Fists doesn't yet have a release date, but check back for details as soon as they become available. 



Jackie Chan is developing a new English-language action comedy, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. Newcomer Jay Longino has been brought aboard to provide the screenplay, based on an idea of Chan's.

Set to be produced in China, the comedy will feature Chan as a detective hired to find an American gambler who owes a substantial amount of money to a Macau-based casino.

Though Chan has appeared recently in films like The Karate Kid and as a voice in both Kung Fu Panda films, his last English language comedy was The Spy Next Door in 2010, which failed to find a significant audience.

When asked what he had coming up and whether it involved Thor 2, Skarsgard offered this: "I will try to combine Thor 2 which starts in August and goes to the end of December with the new Lars Von Trier film."

Whats interesting is that Skargard states that he will be filming on Thor 2 will from August to December. Meaning he would have quite a significant role in the film. Thor 2 was said to be mostly focused on Asgard, so will Thor be taking Jane, Selvig and Darcy to Asgard with him, or will the film be split between Earth and Asgard once again?

Thor 2 reunites Chris Hemsworth with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Natalie Portman as the love interest Jane Foster. Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones") is stepping behind the camera for its November 15, 2013 release date.

HUMAN FLY (In Development)

  • HUMAN FLY... Seriously??

Human Fly

It's not every day that B or C list characters get their own flicks, but what about one that hasn't been around in over thirty years? Turns out The Human Fly from the limited Marvel Comics series will be making it's debut on the big screen, according to Deadline.

For those not in the know, (Which is everybody, that is not extreme comic book fans), The Human Fly was a stuntman who after suffering a horrific accident went through several reconstructive surgeries where much of his skeleton was replaced with steel. He then used his abilities to perform special stunts and tricks for charities but often ran into criminal activites due to his daredevil antics.

So kinda like Kick-Ass and Wolverine? Uhm Human Fly gets a film but not Deadpool, Seriously??

Alan Brewer and James Reach will produce the Steven Goldman film with a screenplay by Tony Babinski.

Green will portray "Troublegum," a very successful hip hop star.

Recently, Green wrapped the second season of the popular television series "The Voice."Green is represented by Larry Mestel at Primary Wave Talent Management who negotiated the deal on his behalf.

The film is described as follows:

“Seduced by dreams of making it in the big city, Gretta (Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend (Levine) move to New York to pursue their passion for music. She’s heartbroken when he dumps her for the fame and fortune of a big solo contract, leaving her all on her own. Left to sleep on the couch of an old friend, Gretta reluctantly agrees to play an open mic night before departing the city for home. Her world takes a turn for the better when a down-on-his-luck record producer (Ruffalo) stumbles upon her singing and is immediately captivated by her raw talent and inspiring authenticity - they may be each other’s last chance to turn their lives around.

Recruiting street musicians, amateurs, and professionals borrowed from the posse of Troublegum (Green), a hip-hop artist he discovered years ago, Dan throws himself into producing for Gretta. Fueled by his enthusiasm, Gretta begins to develop confidence as a performer and songwriter. Dan hopes that his new direction will repair his marriage with his estranged wife Miriam (Keener) and reclaim the respect of his daughter Violet (Steinfeld). Somewhere between friendship and their love of music, the two strangers strike a chord that captures the hearts of everyone around them, proving that every great story has its own soundtrack.”
