WATCH: RZA Says Man With The Iron Fists Tops His Wu-Tang Work
RZA is feeling good about his directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fists. In this Behind-the-scenes featurette, the Wu-Tang Clan leader says he didn't think he could top his musical work with the hip-hop group (or as a solo artist), which, he explains, led "to some of the greatest climaxes of my life." Okay! But after teaming up with "my boy Quentin Tarantino" and Hostel director Eli Roth to "make a fat joint of my own," RZA proudly proclaims "I have topped it."
The 43-year-old first-time filmmaker explains that The Man with the Iron Fists is the result of a fascination with kung-fu movies that began when he was 11 years old, and it sounds like he's got a lot more ideas where this movie came from. He also explains that the movie's soundtrack of hip hop and classic soul is meant to be integral to moviegoers' enjoyment of the picture. You can just sit back, smoke one — if you smoke — and let the music flow.
