RZA’s been awfully quiet about his feature debut, the $20 million The Man With The Iron Fists, which wrapped principal photography 8 or 9 months ago, and, per recent interviews with cast members, is mostly cut, as RZA puts the soundtrack together.
He hasn’t said much about it, other than the little we already know (synopsis, cast, the basics); we’ve seen no stills, no clips, not a damn thing, and until now, there’s been nothing said about a release date.
I was reading THIS Huffington Post piece on RZA’s appearance on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson last night, during which RZA talked about the film, and saw a release date listed for October 2012. No specific day, just October 2012.
No verification from Universal Pictures, the studio handling the film, and nothing listed on IMDB yet either; so this is coming from Huffington Post who are a usually reliable source, so I’ll run with it for now.
And if that does indeed turn out to be the date, it means we’ve got quite awhile to wait for it. I expected it to drop during the early half of this year.
The rapper turned actor/director’s feature film directorial debut, stars RZA himself, Russel Crowe, Pam Grier and others; Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth served as producers.
If anyone reading this has any further info to dish on the project, spill!
