Park Gets Iron Fist

Ray Park, who has played out of the ordinary characters such as Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and Toad in X-Men, has agreed to play the Marvel Comics' crimefighter Iron Fist for a movie of the same name for Artisan Entertainment. John Turman, screenwriter for the upcoming Incredible Hulk and Buck Rogers films, has been hired to write the screenplay. A director is being sought in the hopes that the film can begin production before the possible spring actors' strike.

Park will play Danny Rand, an American raised in a mystical secret temple who can channel his chi, or his life force, into his fist and strike with the force of iron. As an adult, Rand returns to the United States to seek revenge for his parents' murders. Artisan is also at work on a television adaptation of the Mighty Thor.
