For those of you who don’t remember, here is a quick rundown of the original Kickboxer movie:
“Kurt Sloan is the corner-man for his brother, U.S. kickboxing champion Eric Sloan. When Kurt witnesses his brother become maliciously paralyzed in the ring by Thailand champion Tong Po, Kurt vows revenge. With the help of Xian Chow, a kickboxing trainer who lives in a remote area of Thailand, Kurt trains for the fight of his life.”
Funny enough this is also the same plot for Kickboxer: Vengeance. That’s right, the newest installment in the Kickboxer legacy is actually a reboot of the franchise. However, in this case, the character Xian Chow will be replaced with another character, Master Durand, who will be played by JCVD. Bautista will be playing the movie’s main bad guy, Tong Po.
Kickboxer: Vengeance also stars Alain Moussi, Darren Shahlavi, and Georges St-Pierre. The movie is slated for release sometime in 2016.
