Superproducer-turned-movie-director RZA shared some details about the original motion picture soundtrack for his upcoming directorial debut, The Man With the Iron Fists.

RZA revealed that the film will feature quite an eclectic line-up of artists.

The Abbott said: "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. And then we’ve got my buddy Howard Drossin, he’s a trained musician, trained composer and we wrote a lot of different cues."

RZA goes back to basics, re-orchestrating some of his earlier Wu-Tang masters. He added: "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, and we took out a lot of stuff that was in it and re-orchestrated it. And then Stax also came on board to help us out and they gave me about 10 of their famous Stax cues, songs from William Bell, from Isaac Hayes, from Mable John. So we were able strip them down and re-orchestrate it. You’re going to have a great time listening to this movie as a soundtrack."

If you thought the 2003 Kill Bill soundtracks were dope, you ain't seen nothing yet.
