JCVD Signs on for ‘Kickboxer: Retaliation’

We haven’t had much news from JCVD recently but we have some good news; according to THR “Jean-Claude Van Damme is joining the cast of Kickboxer: Retaliation, a sequel to the upcoming Kickboxer: Vengeance, and the second film in a proposed Kickboxer trilogy designed to reboot the original Kickboxer, in which Van Damme starred in 1989.

The original Kickboxer — the martial arts film in which Van Damme played Kurt Sloane, a kickboxer out to avenge the death of his brother — spawned four sequels in the ‘90s. In the upcoming reboot, Kickboxer: Vengeance, directed by John Stockwell and scheduled for release in September, Alain Moussi takes over the role of Sloane and Van Damme appears as Master Durand.

Van Damme will reprise that role in Kickboxer: Retaliation for writer/director Dimitri Logothetis. The actor signed his contract live on his official Facebook page on July 4. The pic, aiming for a 2017 release, is being produced by Our House Films, whose Rob Hickman is producing with the company’s Steven Swadling, Jay Strommen and Larry Nealy serving as exec producers.”

We’re meant to get a full trailer to Kickboxer: Vengeance this week; the movie is out next month so they have left it strangely late.

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.
