Jean-Claude Van Damme Joins Reboot of His "Kickboxer" Film

Posted: December 2nd, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jean-Claude Van Damme Joins Reboot of His "Kickboxer" FilmSubmit Comment
It was recently reported that the upcoming "Kickboxer" reboot will star Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, Alain Moussi (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Georges St Pierre and Tony Jaa.

Now comes word that Jaa has been forced to drop out due to a scheduling conflict. And the actor hired to replace him is Jean-Claude Van Damme, the star of the original film.

"Kickboxer" follows Kurt Sloan (Moussi), a talented martial artist who travels to Thailand where he must learn the secrets of the kickboxer to avenge his brother's death at the hands of Tong Po (Bautista). Van Damme will play a new version of Master Chow, who teaches Sloan the art of the kick. (Dennis Chan played the part in the 1989 original.)

The new film will begin shooting this week in New Orleans before moving to Thailand. John Stockwell (Into the Blue, Turistas) is directing.

Dude's way too old to reprise that role, and way too irrelevant.

Oh, I see, van Damme is playing Master Chow. That could definitely work, although when I think "Chow", I think wizened little Chinese man with rotating hands uttering "wax on, wax off" repeatedly.

I think it is an outrage they used white actors instead of egyptian looking actors. But then again, how would stockwell be able to sell this gem.

I hate to say this but Mink is right on his 1st post. The bloke refresh this site every 5 sec or something just to be firstees.

Also, the last time I checked, JCVD is almost bold and looks very old. Download material at best.
