Every six years, an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters faces a vicious race of alien invaders in a battle for Earth. For thousands of years, the fighters that protect Earth have won… until now. When celebrated war hero Jake Barnes (Alain Moussi) is defeated by Brax, the indomitable leader of the invaders, the future of humanity hangs in the balance. Injured and suffering from amnesia, Jake is rescued by Wylie (Nicolas Cage), Keung and his team of fellow Jiu Jitsu fighters. They must help Jake to regain his strength in order to band together and defeat Brax in an epic battle that will once again determine the fate of mankind.
Jiu Jitsu will be led by Nicolas Cage (Ghost Rider, Mandy) and Alain Moussi (Kickboxer: Vengeance, Kickboxer: Retaliation, Kickboxer: Armageddon). It will also feature Tony Jaa (Furious 7, Monster Hunter), Frank Grillo (Captain America, The Purge), Rick Yune (Olympus Has Fallen), Marie Avgeropoulos (The 100), and JuJu Chan (Wu Assassins).
Jiu Jitsu is being co-written by the source material’s authors Jim McGrath and Dimitri Logothetis, the latter of whom is also directing and producing. It is produced by Martin Barab and Chris Economides.
