Horror film director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) has confirmed his involvement in The Man With the Iron Fist, RZA's directorial debut. (In the past, the de facto Wu-Tang Clan leader worked on the soundtracks and film scores of Quentin Tarantino's two Kill Bill movies and Jim Marmusch's Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.)
Speaking to Billboard.com, Roth explained, "Yes, it is true. RZA's script is amazing. He has been studying and directing with Tarantino for years and he's really ready to get behind the camera. His impact on rap music and hip-hop culture cannot be measured, and he's ready to add his own unique style and vision to the world of film. This movie will have everything martial arts fans could want, combined with RZA's superb musical talent."
