I actually worked with Jeff Wadlow on Never Back Down (I was a bouncer and a Referee at the Beat Down) and the dude was super nice and super down to earth and it was awesome working those long ass hours with him heading up the show.
So I am glad to see him behind the lens on a higher profile movie like this.
The first one is amazing, a movie I can watch once a year, maybe more... so I eagerly anticipate this sequel, and I am very glad it is getting made, as it didnt seem it would considering the 1st movies lackluster box office. The fact that Jim Carrey is in it is just icing!
Hopefully the box office for this is good, but when you have a 1st movie that under-performs, the second in that series has its work cut out for it!
