Published Jun 30, 2010As any good Wu-Tang fan knows, there's no reason to be surprised by the fact that rapper/producer RZA is beginning to dabble in the world of kung fu filmmaking. What's more of a surprise is that it's taken this long. Earlier this year, he revealed that he had a number of projects on the go, and now we're treated to a glimpse of one of them with a trailer for his upcoming film Wu-Tang vs. The Golden Phoenix.
Little is known about the movie, but a trailer has began making its way across the interweb. The two-minute clip, which can be viewed below, features all the makings of a cult classic: a soulful, psychedelic soundtrack, lush colours, blood, magic, and a cast that includes Jackie Chan's stunt team, marshal arts legend Chi Kuan Chun and, of course, RZA himself.
Wu-Tang vs. The Golden Phoenix does not yet have a release date, but once you've seen the trailer you'll be dying to watch the whole thing. In addition to this film, RZA is currently working as the director for The Man With the Iron Fist.
