Don't let the pudgy, doughy facade fool you. This guy was a bastard.

RZA’s involvement in any film project makes it much more palatable.

Mediocre musicians make mediocre filmmakers. Great musicians make mediocre filmmakers. Crappy musicians never get enough attention to become filmmakers.

It looks like the team behind G.I. Joe is going to try a different approach this time. That makes sense.

Russell Crowe to Enter the Wu-Tang
Wednesday, January 12 by

There hasn’t been a lot of news about Wu-Tang Clan Head-of-Voltron RZA’s upcoming kung-fu movie The Man with the Iron Fist once it was announced that it was actually getting made on location in China. But that’s about to change now.

Exclusive: RZA Talks ‘The Man With The Iron Fist’ Fighting Techniques
Tuesday, September 28 by

Wu-Tang Clan’s The RZA is moving into film directing with an idea that would make The Shaw Brothers proud. The Man with the Iron Fist will star Russell Crowe in RZA’s ultimate concept for martial arts. There’s been a little speculation so far about RZA’s ultimate vision. During Fantastic Fest, after he presented master Yuen Wu-Ping with a lifetime achievement award, RZA told me his idea for Iron Fist fights.

The RZA and Elijah Wood Sing Black Eyed Peas at Fantastic Fest – Watch more Funny Videos
At Nerdeoke tonight at The Highball during Fantastic Fest, RZA, Elijah Wood, and friends gathered on stage to sing "I Gotta Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas. Will.i.am was nowhere to be found, but somewhere his ears were ringing as part of the Wu Tang spit his flow.

Russell Crowe Will Bring His Fighting Expertise To RZA’s ‘The Man With The Iron Fist’
Tuesday, September 14 by

Hold the phone! Longtime fan of hitting things, Russell Crowe has signed on to do BFF the RZA a solid by slumming it in the rapper's shoddily-directed kung fu flick, The Man With The Iron Fist. The only thing we know about Crowe's character is that he'll be playing "the baddest man alive." Shouldn't be a stretch. He's already regarded as one of the baddest musicians alive.
Crowe is more than likely doing this as a favor to his friend and oft co-star, so it's unlikely his labor will take that big of a bite out of the movie's $20 million budget. The craft service budget on the other hand… (E!)

Russell Crowe Wants to Know Where the Bullets Go in ‘The Next Three Days’ Trailer
Friday, August 13 by

Lionsgate has dropped the new trailer for Paul Haggis's The Next Three Days. Elizabeth Banks is married to Russell Crowe. She gets wrongly accused of murder. Crowe asks Liam Neeson how he can bust her out of jail. He then finds out how to put bullets in a gun because he must have never seen a movie or TV show before. The couple make a run for it. Overall lesson: Liam Neeson is a bad-ass.
The Next Three Days hits theaters November 19, 2010.

Two Trailers for RZA’s Homegrown ‘Wu-Tang Vs. the Golden Pheonix’
Tuesday, June 29 by

With the runaway success of The Karate Kid, I can understand the push to get more rappers and rapper's progeny in kung fu-based situations, but don't sacrifice the quality of cinema to do so. The grainy footage you'll see below the jump of karate guys jumping around is two trailers for Wu-Tang Vs. The Golden Pheonix, a ten year passion project from The Wu-Tang Clan's chief producer RZA. I know he was going for a certain aesthetic (not spending much money) but I'm afraid RZA's setting himself up for a fall. I'd hate to be there when he's informed that the create-your-own-Grindhouse trailer contest ended years ago and the top prize went to Hobo With A Shotgun. He'll be so upset he'll probably hit the messenger with a bo staff before shooting him with lightning fingers. WATCH SOME GUYS TIRE OUT THEIR ARMS AFTER THE JUMP…
