SPL 2 Coming to US in 2016

It feels like we’ve been waiting forever to see the follow up to the classic SPL starring Donnie Yen and it looks like we may have to wait a little longer.

This sequel stars Tony Jaa and was a smash hit in China.

So when we do get to see it in North America?

It looks like it wil be early 2016 but there is no specific date as yet.

 

 

 

Check out the official press release from Well Go USA:

Well Go USA Entertainment has announced the acquisition of US and Canadian distribution rights to SPL 2: A TIME FOR CONSEQUENCES, directed by Pou-Soi Cheang, multiple award-winning director of MOTORWAY and THE MONKEY KING. 

SPL 2: A TIME FOR CONSEQUENCES stars Tony Jaa (ONG BAK), and Louis Koo (DRUG WAR, FLASH POINT), as well as Wu Jing (SHAOLIN, WOLF WARRIOR) and Simon Yam (IP MAN 2, MAN OF TAI CHI), marking their return to the series, but in entirely new roles. 

In SPL 2, a drug-abusing undercover cop (Wu Jing) is on the verge of exposing the dying kingpin of an organ trafficking ring (Louis Koo). But an unexpected bust blows his cover and lands him in a Thai prison, caught between life, death, and a prison guard with unprecedented martial arts skills (Tony Jaa). 

“We can’t wait to bring the next chapter of the SPL story to the fans who made it a cult classic,” said Doris Pfardrescher, President and CEO of Well Go USA Entertainment. “Combining Tony Jaa with a cast of stars from our best-selling martial arts and action movies was beyond our expectations,” she said. “It’s been worth the wait.”  

The deal was negotiated between Doris Pfardrescher at Well Go USA Entertainment and Chiu-Yi Leung of Bravos Pictures on behalf of the filmmaker. 

SPL 2: A TIME FOR CONSEQUENCES will make its debut and premiere in a series of North American film festivals through the fall, with a theatrical release to follow in early 2016.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
