Directed by Wu-Tang Clan member RZA and co-written by him and splatter savant Eli Roth, The Man with the Iron Fists tells the story of a blacksmith in feudal China who rises up to defend the inhabitants of Jungle Village and become the legend he was destined to be.

Full synopsis follows:

Since his arrival in China's Jungle Village, the town's blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans' brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.

The Quentin Tarantino-produced epic also stars Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Cung Le, Byron Mann, Jamie Chung, Pam Grier, and Dave Batista.

A release date has been set for October 26.
