Noah’s Ark might set sail for martial-arts waters again in the near future.

Uni’s upcoming “Man with the Iron Fists”? It’s already been sprinkled in franchise pixie-dust, according to co-writer Eli Roth.

The blood hound tells We Got This Covered that he and RZA have already been discussing the next chapter in their hip chop-suey series.

RZA and I talked about continuing the story while we were shooting it. We really wanted to write the foundation of something that could continue if we decided to. It was such a great fun, creative collaboration and obviously it depends on how the public likes it, but it is something we’d love to continue.

With some nice early buzz, and a slick marketing campaign, “Iron Fists” should do well enough at the box office to warrant the follow-up – I stress, should (Because I also went on the record in 1991 stressing “it’ll only be a matter of months before we see a sequel to ‘Car 54, Where Are You?’ mark my words’).
