The Scientist, Prince Rakeem, The Abbott, Bobby Digital...these are just a few of the names RZA has had over the years as a hip hop artist, music producer and leader of the Wu Tang Clan. But this Friday, he'll get set to add a new name to his repertoire -- Director -- as he unveils "The Man With The Iron Fists." An ambitious, colorful kung fu flick, the likes of which Hollywood hasn't produced in years, it's quite the undertaking, but as this new featurette reveals, RZA had the advice and insight of some pretty notable people to guide him.

We're still a couple of months away from the film's release, but a recent spate of trailers have seen even those of us who were previously a little lukewarm on "Django Unchained" get a little excited. We're not 100% sold yet, but there's a swaggering confidence to what we've seen so far that makes us hopeful that we could be seeing vintage Tarantino from his racially-charged Western come Christmas Day.

Wrapping earlier this summer, after a reported 130 day shoot, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" went through quite a few cast changes as it rolled in front of cameras. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kevin Costner, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell and Anthony LaPaglia all exited the picture at various points, and while replacements were found, it seems Tarantino had the brainstorm to put himself in the movie too.

As "Django Unchained" made its way in front of cameras, Quentin Tarantino saw both the cast and script for his upcoming slavery/western/vengeance pic change as production moved along. Joseph Gordon-Levitt had to bail on his small role in the film, Kevin Costner couldn't commit to his role either, Sacha Baron Cohen had to bow out, and Kurt Russell also exited the picture (and while Jonah Hill did initially turn down the movie due to scheduling, he was able to join later on, albeit in a different role). And it looks like yet another actor left the project over timing.

Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" made its way to the Comic-Con faithful over the weekend, and by all accounts, including our own, it blew the lid off the place. The film has seen a number of casting changes and additions as it has rolled on its production, which started late last year. But one of the of the biggest What Would Have Been bits of casting involves the lead role itself. Over a year ago, it was revealed that Will Smith was in contention for part of Django. Indeed the actor himself confirmed this last month, saying, "I came really close, it was one of the most amazing screenplays I had ever ever seen. I was in the middle of 'Men In Black 3' and [Tarantino] was ready to go, and I just couldn't sit with him and get through the issues, so I didn't want to hold him up. That thing's going to be ridiculous. It is a genius screenplay." But according to Tarantino, it was Jamie Foxx he ultimately wanted.
