It’s reasonable to believe there was plenty more that could have been had actor, musician, debut director and kung fu cinema enthusiast, RZA succeeded with critical and commercial appeal in the 2012 martial arts fantasy, The Man With The Iron Fists. Unfortunately, box office expectations fell short with some largely critical responses, although it appears Universal Pictures still found there to be some appeal for RZA‘s vision for a follow-up of sorts.
Well, after being teased with twenty seconds of it in the past week, that vision has since arrived in full with a new teaser for The Man With The Iron Fists 2: The Sting Of The Scoripion, from Michel de Ruyter and The Condemned 2 helmer Roel Reine. The plot isn’t yet fully known, although Impact reports a small nugget of the story, based on a script by RZA and John Jarrell, that details the re-emergence of RZA‘s character, Blacksmith, who finds himself in trouble after arriving in a mining town looking for work.
The film is expected to see a line-up of some old faces in addition to new ones, featuring actors Dustin Nguyen and Roger Yuan (Once Upon A Time In Vietnam), actress Eugenia Yuan (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: The Green Destiny), and Cary Tagawa (Skin Trade), with the fascinating return of Andrew Lin and Grace Huang in their roles from the first film as the Gemini twins. As early as it is, further details are pending as usual. In the meantime, after being teased with just twenty seconds of it in the previous week, the full teaser for this direct-to-DVD sequel is officially online. Check it out below!
