Comic-Con 2012: RZA's 'Man With the Iron Fists' to Hit Theaters on Nov. 2

The film, inspired by classic kung-fu movies, marks RZA's feature directorial debut.

Universal will release action-adventure The Man With the Iron Fists -- presented by Quentin Tarantino and directed by hip-hop impresario RZA -- on Nov. 2.

Longtime Tarantino collaborators RZA and Eli Roth co-wrote the script, envisioning the film as an ode to kung-fu classics of the past. RZA also stars, opposite Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu.

RZA, who played rapper-turned-actor Samurai Apocalypse on Showtime's Californication last season, was in Comic-Con on Thursday to talk about Iron Fists, an epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone hero who descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-take-all battle for a fortune in gold.

Rounding out the cast are Jamie Chung, Cung Le, Dave Bautista, Byron Mann, Daniel Wu and Pam Grier.
