Crowe makes a fist of new movie

BANG Showbiz

ACTOR Russell Crowe is set to join Wu-Tang Clan supremo the RZA in the new kung-fu styled movie The Man With The Iron Fist.

A regular star of action packed films, Crowe's new role will see him work under - and alongside - hip-hop turned film director RZA.

RZA and co-writer Eli Roth have been working on The Man With The Iron Fist for the past five years but have only been given the go ahead - and a slated $20 million budget - to start filming recently.

This will be the second time Crowe and the RZA have worked together after the pair appeared in Ridley Scott's American Gangster three years ago.
