Wu Tang mastermind RZA reprises his role as the enigmatic blacksmith Thaddeus in the hard hitting sequel to the 2012 action-adventure The Man with the Iron Fists.
RZA is a huge fan of classic kung-fu films and was inspired to create The Man with the Iron Fists story, with the second chapter available on Blu-Ray and DVD on April 14, 2015.
The Wu Tang Abbot co-wrote the film with screenwriter John Jarrell (Romeo Must Die). The film boasts an international cast including Dustin Nguyen, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Eugenia Yuan, Pim Bubear, Carl Ng, Simon Yin, Ocean Hou, Grace Huang and Andrew Lin.
The Man with the Iron Fists 2 – The Sting of the Scorpion is directed by Roel Reiné who directed The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption.
You can watch the official trailer here. The film follows Thaddeus (RZA) who is found badly wounded near a 19th-century Chinese town, miner Li Kung (Dustin Nguyen) and his wife Ah Ni (Eugenia Yuan) offer him refuge.
As he heals, he becomes entrenched in a conflict that pits the townsfolk against the evil Master Ho (Carl Ng), his nefarious Beetle Clan and the terrifying Lord Pi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa). With Thaddeus at his side, the mild-mannered Kung transforms into a deadly warrior in this martial arts epic.
