Interview: The Man With The Iron Fists' RZA and Eli Roth

As a fan of music it is hard not to be a little thrilled to sit down with hip hop legend RZA from the almighty Wu-Tang Clan. It was especially fun because sitting next to RZA was Eli Roth. The two are out promoting their latest feature THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS. IRON FISTS features a little bit of everything and then some, with a ton of red stuff to fulfill any gorehound's fantasy. After all, they are putting the F U in Kung Fu.

When I sat down with RZA and Eli, we talked about how the script came to be. We also talked about the balancing act that RZA had to do as co-writer, director, actor and the man behind the music. THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS opens this Friday at a theatre near you.

"We didn't want 'grindhouse'. We wanted a modern movie. We wanted Avengers."

That was a great interview - on a lot of movies when actors or filmmakers say "oh, I loved working with so and so, we're friends for life now", you get the sense that it may not be entirely genuine, but hearing RZA and Eli Roth talk about how they met and how they brought the film to life really gives you a sense that these people love what they're doing, and are in it as a team 100%. A modern-day "grindhouse" film...a "blockbuster exploitation" film? There's definitely an audience for that.
