RZA and Eli Roth on Making 'The Man with the Iron Fists'

Writer, director and actor RZA along with co-writer Eli Roth share how they came up with the script and their characters. RZA also shares why he wanted Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu and Rick Yune to star in his action movie. "Rick Yune was always my Zune Yi, I met him in a confrontational moment, years prior but he smiled at the end of the confrontation and when I saw his smile I saw that he had a warm spot and I was telling Eli, Rick Yune as Zune Li. He mostly plays bad guys but no I knew he could come and be a hero for us" said RZA about his lead man.
