RZA’s long-in-the-making kung fu homage The Man With the Iron Fists was a divisive film for action buffs, to say the least. We’ve discussed the film extensively at Cityonfire.com (see: here and here), but needless to say the general consensus is that the movie did not live up to its potential – and RZA is a better director than he his actor.
If you thought that RZA showed potential as a filmmaker, you may be in luck. Impact Online suggests that Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand sales on the movie have been solid, despite a poor performance in theaters. This has re-ignited Universal Pictures’ hopes for a sequel, which the ending of the first film certainly left room for. However, it’s not yet known whether The Man With the Iron Fists 2 would be a theatrical or direct-to-DVD release. We’ll let you know as soon as we know!
