RZA and Russell Crowe Are Making a Kung Fu Movie

Previously, RZA wrote a kung fu movie with Eli Roth called The Man With the Iron Fists that he would both star in and direct, and got Universal to finance it for $20 million. Now: RZA says Russell Crowe will co-star with him in it as "the baddest man alive." Whether RZA picked Crowe because of their previous work together on American Gangster (the pair reportedly even recorded an unreleased song then), or because of Russell Crowe's natural affinity for punching things, this seems like a fortuitously bonkers collaboration.
