RZA and Russell Crowe - Teaming Up?
I remember watching an interview with the RZA a couple years ago about how him and Russell Crowe hit it off really well and Crowe gave him a George Harrison guitar that Dhani Harrison played on Wu Tangs 8 Diagrams. Didn't really expect this though -
"Rekindling a beautiful friendship sparked several years ago during the making of American Gangster, RZA has cast Russell Crowe in his upcoming kung-fu film The Man With The Iron Fist, which (as previously reported) RZA plans to direct with help from producer Eli Roth later this year. E! picked up the news at the MTV Video Music Awards, where RZA was quoted as saying that Crowe will “be the baddest man alive” opposite RZA’s weapons-crafting blacksmith in feudal China, the history of which Crowe is probably revising right this very moment, no matter what smart-assed reporters have to say about it."
I gotta say I'm down as fuck. If I remember correctly, RZA has studied film with John Woo and Tarantino, not bad choices.
