With Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, RZA has enlisted an A-list cast for his upcoming kung-fu flick, The Man with the Iron Fists. It now looks like the accompanying soundtrack will be graced with some of the hottest artists in the music industry. During a conversation with WIRED, RZA shared that Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, The Black Keys, My Chemical Romance and more will be featured on the soundtrack.
“It’s very diverse. You have music from Black Keys, music from Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, My Chemical Romance, rock and roll guys, as well as Sally Yeh, who does John Woo movies, a famous Chinese singer,” he said. “And then we’ve got my buddy Howard Drossin, he’s a trained musician, trained composer and we wrote a lot of different cues.”
In addition, the soundtrack will feature Wu-Tang Clan cuts, that will be re-orchestrated by RZA.
“One thing I think we did that was so cool for me was we went and got some of Wu-Tang’s original songs, the masters, Sony gave them to us to you, and we took out a lot of stuff that was in it and re-orchestrated it,” he detailed. “You’re going to have a great time listening to this movie as a soundtrack.”
The Man with the Iron Fists opens November 2.
