The full cast of the upcoming 3D Kickboxer reboot has been revealed today as Brian O’Shea, CEO of The Exchange, has announced that Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum, Zero Dark Thirty) and Tony Jaa (Ong Bak, Fast & Furious 7) will join the previously-attached Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), former UFC welterweight champion George St. Pierre (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Alain Moussi (X-Men: Days of Future Past). Stephen Fung (Tai Chi Zero, Tai Chi Hero) is directing.
With the addition of Adkins and Jaa, Kickboxer is set to feature a variety of over 20 martial arts disciplines. The story 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).
“Kickboxer will display a style of acrobatic, rapid-fire martial arts action that Scott Adkins is increasingly becoming synonymous with,” said O’Shea, “Along with Tony Jaa, ‘Kickboxer’ has compiled a talented cast to push the boundaries of the martial arts form.”
The film is produced by Ted Field of Radar Films (Riddick, The Last Samurai), Dimitri Logothetis and Nick Celozzi. Mike Weber and Peter Meyer will executive produce.
