Russell Crowe signs on for ‘The Man With The Iron Fist’

Here’s some news you don’t hear everyday— Russell Crowe has signed on to star in former Wu-Tang Clan member RZA’s directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fist.   Yes, you heard that right. The Russell Crowe.

Crowe will play the villain  and  RZA had the following to say about his casting:

“Russell’s gonna be the baddest man alive. That man is in fighting shape. That man will knock you out.” It’s nerve-wracking. I’m quite sure that I may learn something from him.”

The pairing of RZA and Russell isn’t all that unusual when you think about it. The two did star together in Ridley Scott’s ‘American Gangster’, and rumor has it they recorded a song for the film that wasn’t included on the original soundtrack. For our sake, I assume.

Filming for ‘The Man with the Iron Fist’ begins in December in Shanghai, with Eli Roth co-producing the film.
