RZA, the evil genius behind the forthcoming fu-sploitation epic The Man With The Iron Fists (not to mention the whole Wu-Tang Clan) has announced that he is at work on an animated short to accompany the feature film. Following the Quentin Tarantino model (QT released an animated series in conjunction with his revenge saga Kill Bill) for world domination pretty much to the tee, The Abbott is collaborating on an anime-style companion piece with Eric Calderon of Afro Samurai fame, to debut on Machinima's youtube channel sometime this month. What's more, Machinima and RZA are holding a sweepstakes for one lucky fan (and a guest--this like The Price Is Right, kid) to fly to New York for the premiere of the big screen version. Get details (and a tiny sneak peak at the look of the anime joint) by watching the trailer below.
