Friday July 15, 2016— Jean-Claude Van Damme will take on teacher role in Kickboxer: Vengeance, a re-do of his 1989 movie which grossed $14 million on a $1.5 million budget. This new movie was filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Thailand with a budget of $17 million.
The movie is about a mixed martial artist named Kurt Sloane (stuntman-turned-actor Alain Moussi) who seeks revenge after his brother dies in a match in Thailand against Muay Thai champion Tong Po. Dave Bautista will act as Tong Po with the same long-ponytailed hairstyle that the character boasted in the original movie. Also in the movie is Gina Carano who will be playing the part of a fight promoter.
We do get to see other fighters who turned actors, Georges St-Pierre who is playing a character called Kavi. Also in the movie is Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum expect them to bring their skills to the big screen.
Kickboxer: Vengeance pretty much has the same plot as the original 1989 film. Moussi’s character, Kurt Sloan, travels to Thailand to get revenge on professional fighter Tong Po following the death of Sloan’s brother in the ring with Po.
The movie is directed by John Stockwell (Blue Crush) and will be out in theaters on Sept. 2, and if you noticed on the trailer, JCVD will be wearing his hat and sunglasses in every one of his famous punches and roundhouse kicks in every scene.
