RZA to helm The Iron Fist July 8, 2008 Wu-Tang Clan leader to make his directorial debut. RZA will make his directorial debut on the film The Man With The Iron Fist. According to filmmaker Eli Roth (Hostel), the Wu-Tang Clan leader is Quentin Tarantino’s current protege and has crafted an impressive screenplay for a martial arts feature. He told Chud: “RZA’s script is amazing. He has been studying directing with Tarantino for years and he’s really ready to get behind the camera. His impact on rap music and hip-hop culture cannot be measured, and he’s ready to add his own unique style and vision to the world of film.” Roth, a producer on the film, added that Iron Fist would satisfy fans of the genre with its extreme violence. “This movie will have everything martial arts fans could want, combined with RZA’s superb musical talent,” he said. “This project has been his dream for years, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. And fans should know that yes, there will be blood… This ain’t no PG-13.” EXTRAs: RZA previously worked on the soundtrack for Kill Bill. He has also acted in American Gangster and Derailed.
