According to Universal, the premiere date of The Man With The Iron Fists is now set for Friday, November 2nd of this year.
RZA's martial arts action flick, "The Man with the Iron Fists," in which the rapper not only directs and co-writes (with Hostel's Eli Roth) but also stars as a blacksmith in 19th-century China, who turns into a powerful kung fu warrior and savior of his small village. RZA is joined by Russell Crowe as a mysterious cowboy named Jackknife, while Lucy Liu plays Madame Blossom, a ruthless assassin. Presented by Quentin Tarantino, the chopsocky pic has been considered to be RZA's passion project; since childhood, the rapper has been a devoted fan of Hong Kong martial arts films, hence the name of his rap group, which was taken from Gordon Liu's 1981 film "Shaolin and Wu Tang."

Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZA -- alongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu -- tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all. Since his arrival in China's Jungle Village, the town's blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans' brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.
