MTV built with Bobby Digi and picked his brain for a bit on both the film and soundtrack for The Man With the Iron Fists.

RZA introduces the two-minute teaser by stating the role martial arts played in his life and how his mentorship with director Quentin Tarantino helped make the film possible. We also see behind-the-scenes footage of RZA working with Tarantino and writer/director Eli Roth, who helped RZA write the screenplay for “Fists,” along with teaser shots of the film’s stars Lucy Liu and Russell Crowe. There’s a Tarantino-esque style in some of the scenes that will be familiar to anyone who has seen “Kill Bill,” but RZA maintains he’s put his own stamp on the genre, which includes an original soundtrack that he calls a “blend of hip-hop and classic soul.”
