RZA has co-written the sequel to his film The Man With the Iron Fists but did not, this time, take the director’s chair. Instead, the job of steering this follow-up through production fell on Roel Reiné, a specialist in lower-budget and often direct to disc action pictures.
Not only has Reine got sequels to The Marine, 12 Rounds and Behind Enemy Lines on his resume, there are also a pair of Death Race prequels and The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption, which is actually a sequel to a prequel to a prequel to a sequel to a remake.
Back in the summer, when production had just wrapped, RZA called this second Iron Fist film Sting of the Scorpion in numerous interviews. That subtitle is nowhere to be seen in this trailer, but it might inform how you read these scenes.
