If you’ve ever seen the hit fantasy show, then you’ve probably got an idea as to what The Mountain brings to any kind of setting. This intimidating force will, of course, be playing the main villain in the upcoming Kickboxer: Retaliation. However, because Björnsson is competing in the World Strongest Man competition, filming will have to wait until that is over. As for why the sequel is already being made, according to the report, it’s due to “staggering” early interest. This bodes well for fans of the franchise.
For those of you who don’t know, Kickboxer: Vengeance is a movie that is based upon the original Kickboxer and is almost a complete retelling of the story. However, instead of Van Damme as the hero of the story, he’ll be portraying the man who has to train Alain Moussi’s character for the fight of his life. Let’s face it though, Van Damme will always be the hero in our hearts.
Kickboxer: Vengeance is scheduled to be release later this year.
