Kung Pow 2 may finally be in the works

Talk about a blast from the past! It's been 13 years since KUNG POW!: ENTER THE FIST brought it's ridiculousness to the masses and while the end of that film jokingly teased a sequel, it seems like creator Steve Oedekirk may up for shooting one after all!

For those unfamiliar, KUNG POW! was a one-man show with Oedekerk as director, screenwriter, and star. The movie was a martial arts spoof that borrowed footage from other martial arts films and combined it with new footage featuring Oedekerk as the kung fu hero. It's restoration of older footage was impressive for the time, although its brand of humor was not for everyone. As reported by World Film Geek, Oedekerk attended the Dragonfest convention in Burbank, California this past weekend and it was there he announced that he would be going ahead with a KUNG POW 2.

Oedekerk hasn't been too busy in the writing/directing department lately, but given the success of KUNG FURY, a second KUNG POW makes sense. There's obviously a market for kung fu and ridiculous antics and while I'd argue KUNG FURY did it better (could never get into the dubbing of KUNG POW!), I'm still curious to see what Oedekerk can cook up. It's been over a decade so maybe he has some new ideas that would suit a sequel without it seeming like overkill. Then again, maybe I'm giving him too much credit...

Do you want to see a sequel to KUNG POW?

"I rock. And roll. All night long, sweet suzie!"
"The chosen one! Weeweeweeeweee...."
"You go there. I go home."
Ok the Matrix parody bullshit should have been cut, but the rest is comedy platinum.

Kung Pow had THE BEST dvd features ever.

Watch the movie with them speaking BEFORE the dubbing. It's hysterical. They are fighting and just talking about pancakes and waffles. What they like to do on the weekend and it's just funny. Then there were two other tracks you could turn on like an alternative dubbing and the original chinese dub.

I always wondered why more movies didn't do this (insert people into old movies) I was REALLY hoping they would do that for Terminator Genisys but they fucked it all up.

I definitely thought I was going to be the only one excited about this news. Glad to see the JoBlo community is on the same page :)

I loved that movie!

... But I'm not a teenager anymore. I tried rewatching it a few months ago and was saddened by how little I was laughing. I can't imagine a sequel, so many years later, being worth the time/effort it would take to make. If a younger generation discovers the first one on Netflix and falls in love with it, that's fantastic. But, in my opinion, that sequel window closed years ago.

SHIRT RIPPER!!

Loved this movie when it came out. Loved the funny little ways they copped together footage to have it make sense. "Your clothes are RED!" Have wanted a sequel to this ever since they teased it at the end of Enter the Fist.

Face to foot style, how'd ya like it?

I really hope this happens. Unlike some others, this was one of the best times I have had in theaters. This is a movie I can watch with my friends every year for 4/20. This is unexpected, and I been waiting for this for too long.

Probably the worst time I've ever had at the theater. Totally unnecessary.

I loved that movie, but isn't Oedekerk too old for the part now?
