Kickboxer remake sequel already being planned
Headmon Entertainment and Acme Rocket Fuel must be feeling pretty confident about their KICKBOXER remake, which apparently is now being called KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE. The upcoming film is still in post-production and doesn't even have a set release date yet, but the production companies have announced that funding is already in place for a sequel that will be titled KICKBOXER 2: RETALIATION.
Directed by John Stockwell's (IN THE BLOOD, TURISTAS), KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE stars stuntman Alain Moussi as "Kurt Sloan, a talented martial artist who travels to Thailand where he must learn the secrets of the kickboxer to avenge his brother's death at the hands of Tong Po," with Dave Bautista playing Tong Po and original KICKBOXER star Jean-Claude Van Damme playing the martial artist who teaches Sloane how to fight Po. Moussi will be back for the sequel, but with producer/screenwriter Dimitri Logothetis directing instead of Stockwell.
