We'll admit it. When we first heard Wu-Tang Clan co-founder RZA was directing Russell Crowe in a kung fu epic called The Man With The Iron Fists, we were a little skeptical.
However, all it takes is one awesome trailer (above) to change our minds and now we're hooked.
The music producer-turned-actor-turned-director has most recently demonstrated his ability to carry a scene in the last season of Californication, but now he's demonstrating his ability to construct a scene from behind the camera.
Since he co-wrote the upcoming martial arts flick with Eli Roth and got Quentin Tarantino to produce it, we've got lots of faith it will deliver. In fact, it's even got a Kill Bill vibe, but looks a little more supernatural and perhaps even a little more ridiculous.
From what we can gather, Lucy Liu, Crowe and WWE Superstar David Bautista are three of seven warriors fighting each other for a butt ton of gold passing through a small village in China.
On top of all the intense action sequences, the film promises lots of good music to back it up since Kanye West, The Black Keys, Wu-Tang and Wiz Khalifa all recorded new music for the soundtrack.
