Watch the first red band (NSFW) trailer for RZA's The Man with the Iron Fists, from IGN:
RZA's Man With the Iron Fists is to be a "bloody R rated martial arts extravaganza" that he developed after studying Quentin Tarantino for a few years. The film mixes kung fu with a spaghetti western mindset and a hip hop influence. The screenplay was written by Eli Roth and RZA. "I'm going to tell you that we put a lot of time into the script, a lot of energy into it, a lot of people were supporting me on it, and if the energy comes out right, it should be a classic film to have in your library," RZA stated before. Universal funded and is opening Fists in theaters sometime in 2012, we'll update you with more info. Here's the first official poster:
Thanks to Twitch for that first impressive vintage poster above. Universal has not set an actual 2012 release date for The Man with the Iron Fists yet, so we'll let you know as soon as they do. Excited to watch this?
