Pam Grier Tweets That She's In The Man With The Iron Fist, Russell Crowe Arives In Shanghai

Currently shooting in China, The Man With The Iron Fist will be the directorial debut of RZA, sometime actor and member of the Wu-Tang clan. He co-wrote the script with Eli Roth who is also producing and has, I'm told, directed some second unit work on the picture.

RZA has taken the starring role himself, as a blacksmith who creates the weapons for an under-siege village in Feudal China. While it's not clear how large their parts will be,  many other names have also been mentioned in association with the project:

  • Russell Crowe
  • Lucy Liu
  • Dave Bautista
  • Jamie Chung
  • Cung Le
  • Byron Mann
  • Osric Chau
  • Darren Scott

And now we can add Pam Grier to that list. The actress last night tweeted:

Returned from Shanghai film directed by RZA of Wu Tang w Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, on Man With Iron Fist, To tape Oprah Winfrey Show Mad Fun!

It seems reasonable to assume that Ms. Grier has a smaller role, having left the set already. Nonetheless, a little bit of Foxy goes a long way.

The image at the head of the post, incidentally, shows Mr. Crowe arriving in Shanghai to film on the project.
