Universal announces the gory kung fu actioner "The Man with the Iron Fists" will be released November 2. The film is a Quentin Tarantino presentation and the directorial debut of longtime Tarantino collaborator, RZA.

Wu-Tang Clan member RZA is also the co-writer of the film with Eli Roth, and will star alongside Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu and Pam Grier. "The Man with the Iron Fists" centers on an epic battle between warriors, assassins and a lonewolf outsider in a fabled Chinese village. Check out the trailer below -- there's blood-squirting martial arts a-plenty, and RZA's iron welder character makes himself some hard-ass metal sleeves.

RZA's best-known collaboration with Tarantino is the synthy, pulsing score for the two "Kill Bill" films.
