RLJ Entertainment debuted the trailer and poster for Kickboxer: Vengeance (formerly Kickboxer), an upcoming American martial arts film directed by John Stockwell.
The film stars Alain Moussi, Jean-Claude Van Damme (who played Kurt Sloane in the original Kickboxer film series), Dave Bautista, Gina Carano, Georges St-Pierre and Darren Shahlavi (in his final film role).
It is a reboot of the original series, and has a similar premise as the first film in the franchise.
The film follows Eric and Kurt Sloan, descendants of a well-known Venice, California-based family of martial artists.
Kurt has always been in older brother Eric’s shadow as he lacks the instincts needed to become a champion. But when Kurt witnesses the merciless murder of his brother at the hands of Muay Thai champion Tong Po, he vows revenge.
He trains with his brother’s mentor, Xian Chow, for a Muay Thai fight to the death with Tong Po. Chow first thinks Kurt impossible to train, but through a series of spiritual exercises and tests, Chow discovers that Kurt has a deeper strength that will carry him through his final showdown with Tong Po.”
Written by Dimitri Logothetis and Jim McGrath.
Kickboxer: Vengeance is set to open in theaters on September 2, 2016.
