Blood and Bone was an underrated martial arts gem starring Michael Jai White from 2009; it had bone crunching fight scenes and a badass protagonist in Isaiah Bone (MJW). How many times can I say ‘bone” in one sentence?
The story of Blood and Bone was about an ex-con in Los Angeles who takes the underground fighting world by storm in his quest to fulfill a promise to a dead friend.
We’ve been wondering if we would ever see a follow up and when we spoke to Michael last year he said that everyone wants it to happen, it was just a case of financing and polishing off the script.
Recently Michael Jai White took to Twitter and responded to a fan question regarding a sequel and he said “Already written. Might have 2 Crowd-fund it.”
Now this is a crowdfunding campaign I could genuinely get behind and would definitely contribute some money to.
It is a shame though that smaller indie action films are struggling to get financing these days, especially when there are so many crap blockbusters out there.
I would check out Blood and Bone 2 in a heart beat; so watch this space if a crowdfunding campaign should come along.
