The Hangover Part II’s Jamie Chung plays Lady Silk in ‘The Man With Iron Fists’

 

Producer Marc Abraham explains Lady Silk’s role in the action-adventure: “To buy the freedom of his beloved prostitute, the Blacksmith does what he has to do and builds weapons for bad guys. He’s not proud of it, but he’s justified it. In the end, he decides to free himself from all this and to do the right thing: to destroy those weapons and the people who have forced him to make them, and to hopefully free the woman he loves. Ultimately, Jamie’s character is in love with him, but not so much that she would sacrifice her freedom. She wants wealth, power and to get out. She’s used him to some degree, but he’s touched her.”

What did you think of the script when you first read it?

To be honest, when I first read the script, I didn’t quite get it. Then I met with RZA and I was totally sold on it once I saw his vision.

What was it about RZA that convinced you to be in THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS?

His enthusiasm. This is something he has wanted to do for his entire life. When he finally got the chance to do it, he partnered up with all of his buddies. You couldn’t say no to something like this.

Who is Lady Silk?

She is kind of the driving force for RZA’s character, the Blacksmith, because he needs a reason to make all these weapons and save all this money. In a way, she gets the torch passed on from Madame Blossom, Lucy Liu’s character, and is the next one inline as part of Madame Blossom’s sort of female society, known as the Black Widows.

What do you like about your character?

I like that she is seductive, but at the same time very selective. She is only with the Blacksmith.

Were you a fan of martial arts movies before getting involved in THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS?

I grew up watching films like Bruce Lee’s ENTER THE DRAGON. To be honest, I wasn’t very familiar with many of the vintage kung fu movies that RZA put me up to, but I’m glad he did!

What do you believe RZA’s vision has added to the martial arts genre?

We have recently seen beautiful ballet-style martial arts films like CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON but they are nothing like this movie. THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS has resurrected a new style of cinema.

Quentin Tarantino has been involved in this project. How would you compare THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS to his previous work?

People can compare it to Quentin’s previous work, but THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS is kind of its own thing. Everything about this movie is just so cool!

And what can you say of Eli Roth’s role as a screenwriter and a producer?

Eli is lovely. He is quite the character and was really important to have on set. I believe Eli, being an experienced director, was able to help RZA stay on track. He knew what shots he needed and how to handle the logistics.

Speaking of the logistics, were you impressed with the sets in China?

They were beautiful, representing old-school China. For instance, the set decorators took an abandoned building and turned it into Madame Blossom’s House of Ladies.

So, what was the experience of being in Shanghai like?

Shanghai is an amazing port city and it’s quite eclectic. Everyone speaks English and there are lots of cultures. We stayed in a little town west of Shanghai where no one spoke English, so we spent a lot of time together, even though we tried to sneak into the city whenever we could.

Hong Kong director and legend Corey Yuen designed the fight sequences. How was it to work with Corey?

I have done stunt work before. There were so many professional fighters on this movie so it was easy to catch on. I was really impressed with Lucy Liu because she barely had any time to rehearse her stunts and she killed it!

What can you say about Lucy Liu?

She is so beautiful, talented and such a true artist. I aspire to be like her.

And how was Russell Crowe?

I barely got to work with him, but that was perfect because his character is quite intimidating, though very charming.

RZA wrote, shot and starred in THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS as the Blacksmith. Do you think that was a lot to tackle on his directorial debut?

You’re talking about a gentleman. RZA is absolutely lovely! And it’s interesting because he is so confident and outgoing on screen, but then very Zen and shy in real life. He has so much going on in his head that you have to trust him because there is a reason for everything he does.

What was the energy like on set then?

Yes, there was a lot of joking around. Every day was an adventure!

And what did you think of the film when you saw it finished?

I thought, “RZA, if I ever questioned you, please forgive me because this is everything thing you said it would be and cooler!”

Did you enjoy the music?

I think it’s fantastic! RZA has some incredible people collaborating in the soundtrack. He has worked with so many great artists in the past, that to finally ask for that favor back for his own film was pretty amazing.

What have you taken back from this whole experience?

I am just in awe with how well it all came together!

Move-over ‘The Rock’ Half-Filipino Wrestler Superstar Dave "Batista" Bautista is here!

dave_bautista_TMWTIF_image_1

 

Half-Filipino World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar and current MMA heavyweight fighter David “Batista” Bautista stars as Brass Body in Universal Pictures’ “The Man With The Iron Fists”. The performer shares that his nearly invincible character—who is able to deflect any weapon by turning his skin into brass at will—is brutal inside and out. He says: “If you break Brass Body down, what he is really is a mercenary. In his opening scene, he’s carrying the little kids around, but basically what he wants is money. He would kill his own mother for money.”

The Man With the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and ELI ROTH. Making his feature-film debut as a director, co-writer and leading man, RZA—alongside an exciting international cast led by RUSSELL CROWE as Jack Knife and LUCY LIU as Madam Blossom—tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-takes-all battle for a fortune in gold.

Blending astonishing martial arts sequences from some of the masters of this world, with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop’s most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.

 

What did you think of the script when you first read it?

My character didn’t say much in the movie at first, but then they kept giving me lines.

What was it about RZA that convinced you to be in THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS?

I just really wanted to work with RZA. When I first heard he was interested in me being in the movie, I immediately asked to be signed on.

What do you like about your character?

My character is kind of a sociopath with a good heart. He seems like a good guy who doesn’t know the difference between right and wrong. He probably would do anything for a dollar.

Were you a fan of martial arts movies before getting involved in THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS?

I was. Growing up in Washington D.C., we always had kung fu action theatre every Saturday. I loved those movies. Quentin Tarantino has brought a lot of that flavor back in his films.

What do you believe RZA’s vision has added to the martial arts genre?

This film has a new feel with such a multi-ethnic cast, unique music and everything that RZA has brought into it.

And what can you say of Eli Roth’s role as a screenwriter and a producer?

Eli is super down to earth, positive and also tons of fun. He is great to work with.

Speaking of the logistics, were you impressed with the sets in China?

Yes, we all had each other to lean on. And we had to get used to being crammed up in small spaces. Americans are used to having their space.

Hong Kong director and legend Corey Yuen designed the fight sequences. How was it to work with Corey?

He was a savior to us when RZA and I were a bit lost with this fight sequence between our characters we were trying to put together. Corey wasn’t accessible to us because he was tied up with the second unit, but he came back to it at the end of the movie and knew exactly how to shoot it and had so many ideas. Corey Yuen is awesome!

What can you say about Lucy Liu?

And even though she is this tiny person that is absolutely beautiful, she also has this presence that translates into everything she does.

And how was Russell Crowe?

Russell is down to earth, doesn’t want attention and is very much the gentleman.

RZA wrote, shot and starred in THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS as the Blacksmith. Do you think that was a lot to tackle on his directorial debut?

I was impressed with RZA. He is such a great artist and just so creative. I can’t imagine how you can do so much on your first film!

What was the energy like on set then?

It was great! I was excited to go to work every day. So, it was a bummer when I had to stay at the hotel. It was a family atmosphere and a lot of fun.

What have you taken back from this whole experience?

This was an opportunity of a lifetime and a dream come true for me.

Parental Guidance from Billy Crystal

 

“PARENTAL GUIDANCE” FROM BILLY CRYSTAL

In the family comedy “Parental Guidance,” Artie Decker (Billy Crystal), who is accustomed to calling the shots, meets his match when he and his eager-to-please wife Diane (Bette Midler) agree to babysit their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents (Marisa Tomei, Tom Everett Scott) go away for work.

Inevitably things go haywire as soon as they arrive. The kids are not happy to see their grandparents, who have a very different approach to parenting and family life from their mother and father.

Artie’s has mixed feelings about this which is partly due to his recent professional setbacks. A minor league baseball announcer for over 30 years, Artie has just been fired, losing his dream to work in the major leagues. Still reeling from that disappointment, the last thing he wants is to look after his grandchildren. But Artie will ultimately discover that there’s more to life than announcing ball games. “He’s been fired from a job he loves, but then finds himself kind of falling in love with his grandkids,” says Crystal.

“Parental Guidance” combines comedy and pathos in the best way,” affirms Billy Crystal, who portrays Artie Decker. “It’s what life is about. This film has something for everyone.”

Crystal further elaborates on the following q&a the joys of growing up, being a grandparent and producing “Parental Guidance.”

Q: Can you describe Artie and Diane’s marriage?

A: “They are not typical grandparents in that they don’t see the kids a lot and live on the other side of the United States. He and Diane are very devoted to each other; it's an old-school, traditional kind of relationship in that his wife has supported him throughout the marriage. When our daughter calls and says, ‘I need you to take care of the kids’, Bette says ‘yes’ but I don't want to go. Bette Midler is fantastic as Diane. We were so privileged that she agreed to play the role with me.”

Q: Artie is a bit old-fashioned in that way?

A: “Artie is not tech savvy at all. He is not kid savvy either and that's part of the charm of the movie. He tries to find himself again and get out of his malaise about losing his job. He starts to realize that what's really important is being a loving grandfather and the fact that the kids love him.”

Q: What is your relationship like with your kids now?

A: “We hate each other; we don't speak! (laughs). No, now it's even better. It is great seeing the fruits of your labor. The joy I have in watching my daughters with their kids is great, because they're doing a wonderful job and the kids are fantastic. Recently we were all together in one house for ten days and it was lovely. I think it's profound to watch the legacy go on. My parents did a good job, we did a good job, they're doing a good job and that's all you can ask for.”

Q: It's still hard to think of you as a grandfather.

A: “It is amazing to me too. But I've settled into being a grandfather. I love being around the kids. They’re starting to understand what I do now for a living and they're starting to see me in movies. They have an entirely different view of me now they know that I act and that I was Mike Wazowski in MONSTERS INC. I had to talk like him for six months. Then they saw THE PRINCESS BRIDE and I had to be Miracle Max (his character from the movie) for six months. And now they get to see me in this film. So it's a really nice time in my life.”

 

“Parental Guidance” opens January 16 in theaters from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
