Screenwriter Rich Wilkes has been hired by Marvel to draft a movie based on the kung fu comic 'Iron Fist'. The story follows Danny Rand a martial arts expert whose battle with a dragon ended when he plunged his hands through the beast's molten heart which turned his fists into indestructible weapons.
