RZA - The Man With The Iron Fists

This thing just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Apparently moving forward with a brand new cast of characters, Channing Tatum continues to get one hell of a collection of actors surrounding him on the upcoming sequel to G.I. JOE. THRis reporting that Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA has joined the film’s cast, along with D.J. Cotrona.

The film is set to be directed by Jon Chu, and with Channing Tatum and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura aboard as a producer, this film looks to be something of a truly new step in the franchise’s run. The pair join Dwayne Johnson and Elodie Yung in this shockingly top-notch, but rather bizarre, cast of characters.

Of course, RZA will be playing a martial arts master named Blind Master, with Cotrona aboard as Flint. RZA will next be seen in his upcoming film, THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS, a martial arts film which not only sees him in the director’s chair, but also alongside Russell Crowe as the lead. Personally, I absolutely love this cast, and honestly, anything has to be better than that first film, right? I think that the right cast and crew are being put together for this project, so at this point, my anticipation and hopes, are really rather high.

What do you think?
