Tony Jaa will be in the remake of 'Kickboxer'
The Thai actor has joined the cast of Stephen Fung’s 3D remake of Kickboxer, the American martial arts movie released 25 years ago.
Announced a few months ago, the Kickboxer remake has just added a few new names to its cast. Tony Jaa, who starred in the Thai martial arts movie Ong-Bak and will soon appear in Fast And Furious 7, has joined the production in a major role, according to Collider. British stuntman Scott Adkins (Hercules, Zero Dark Thirty) has also come on board.
To be helmed by Hong Kong-based director Stephen Fung, the remake will star stuntman Alain Moussi (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) in the role based – more or less – on the one played by Jean-Claude Van Damme in the original. While in the 1989 film, Kurt Sloan seeks revenge on the fighter who put his brother in a wheelchair, the new version will depict the character’s travels through Thailand in search of his brother’s killer.
The new Kickboxer, which could be the first in a series, will also feature pro wrestler Dave Bautista, who is currently starring in Guardians Of The Galaxy, and former UFC world champion George St-Pierre. — AFP Relaxnews
