Cast fills out for RZA’s MAN WITH THE IRON FIST; Russell Crowe confirmed
With the film in the midst of production, we have learned even more about the hotly anticipated film, the RZA-directed martial arts film, THE MAN WITH THE IRON FIST.
Film Business Asia is reporting (via The Playlist), that Lucy Liu, Daniel Wu, and Byron Mann have joined the film’s cast, which includes the now confirmed Russell Crowe, who will be shooting on set from the end of January to the end of February.
While he may not be the biggest box office draw, Crowe is still quite an interesting thespian, and definitely adds a ton of draw to this otherwise niche release. That said, the addition of Liu and Wu are far and away the most intriguing additions to this film. I’m a huge Lucy Liu fan, and Danny Wu adds a lot of depth to this film’s cast.
Personally, this is a film that I can’t wait to check out, as it appears to be moving along at quite the clip. A late 2011/early 2012 festival premiere? I sure as hell hope so.
