It may not have been the greatest martial arts film ever made, but RZA’s The Man With the Iron Fists was a lot of fun, with over the top fight scenes, some pretty cool ideas and plenty of seriously hot girls. It’s a guilty pleasure then, and I had no idea there were plans for a sequel.
Turns out there were plans for a sequel, and the first trailer for The Man With the Iron Fists: Sting of the Scorpion has just been released. It looks like more of the same, so if you are a fan of the first film that is certainly not a bad thing.
Dutch director and straight to DVD sequel King Roel Reine (Death Race 2, The Marine 2, The Scorpion King 3: Battle of Redemption, Death Race 3: Inferno, 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded, SEAL Team 8: Behind Enemy Lines) is taking over directing duties here from RZA.
RZA, Rick Yune, Zhu Zhu, Andrew Lin and Grace Huang all reprise their roles as the Blacksmith, X-Blade, Chi Chi and The Gemini Twins, while newcomers to the cast include Dustin Nguyen, Cary Tagawa and Carl Ng.
