"Bloodsport" Reboot is Unrelated to "Bloodsport"

Posted: October 9th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Bloodsport" Reboot is Unrelated to "Bloodsport"Submit Comment
Back in August, Jean-Claude Van Damme confirmed that a "Bloodsport" remake was in the work, adding that writer Robert Mark Kamen (The Karate Kid, Taken, The Transporter, The Fifth Element) won't let him make a cameo.

Now, while promoting "Taken 2," Kamen spoke about why he doesn't want Van Damme in the reboot. "This film resembles the original in title only," he explained. "It has nothing to do with any Kumite contest. It has nothing to do with Frank Dux. If the title was not the same, you would not associate the two films."

Kamen continued: "To use JCVD would make no sense because the association would be lost as the story has nothing to do with the first one. If anything it would be a distraction. This is a character driven, politically motivated film. It has nothing to do with splits or muscles or grudge matches."

It's pretty clear why Kamen doesn't want to use Van Damme, but why bother rebooting "Bloodsport" when the plan is to make something completely unrelated?

So Kamen is just using the fame (?) from BLOODSPORT, but not the star that made it famous. Not even a cameo? And then not even having anything related to the original's premise?

Motherf*cker then why are you bring it up in the first place. They could just change the title & earn the fame on its own merit?

That's the most douche-y thing I've heard today...

As for JCVD not appearing? f*ck THE CHUCK!! (This time its for those coat-riding f*cking hacks!!)

The female Expendables should have used this title !

So. It's a Bloodsport film with absolutely nothing from the first BloodSport film?

Well, I can see why they don't want Jean. I wouldn't either. He's a terrible actor and it's kind of sad to think he wants in on this, as if it's a) not a bad idea and b) he can't find other work.

I just have to wonder: if the new BloodSport has nothing whatsoever to do with the original, even in plot, why not call it something else?

In related news, a Bad News Bears film is now set for production. Inside sources say the new film will be about canine androids with rocket packs playing spaceball on the moon.

That makes sense. In other news: the sky is no longer the sky, but is now officially the ground.



f*cking idiots.

Screw rebooting the film. Sounds like it is a totally different movie anyway.

I better like the idea to have JCVD reprise his role in a sequel. This time have them fighting in wheelchairs with super bionic body replacement parts but with no legs.......

Then instead of using this title, why they don't use something like Bloodmatch or Deadly Sport...... Common Hollywood sometimes your stupidity amaze me when you are trying to do something like this!

wow i agree with a lot of posters on here...as if remaking and rebooting useless sh*t wasn't enough, now they're stealing titles...i love how stupid these directors are, they actually think this will be big and go down in history...yea it'll be big alright, a big failure...seriously, i hope these directors/executives get what's coming to them...audiences can't be conned forever

While I'll agree that JCVD is a terrible actor and that the original is not much to write home about, I've always had a soft spot for it's awful quotables, AND I've always thought the core story (which is based upon an actual true story) held a lot potential for a well-executed movie.

Of course, I'm sure there are people out there who would argue that 'Speed Racer' or 'Human Centipede' held a lot of potential, too...

@tt --- lol.

"Bloodsport" Reboot is Unrelated to "Bloodsport" --- other than the title is identical, which ahh... completely contradicts his very next statement (oh, which I'm SURE I've taken out of context): "If the title was not the same, you would not associate the two films."

Nice moves Corky!

UPDATED NEWS:

Batman reboot will not feature Batman nor be about the crime fighter or crime. It actually is about a dogs journey through the rugged mountains to find his master who left on a summer vacation and left him in a kennel.
