Dimitri Logothetis, director of the recently released Kickboxer: Retaliation, as well as co-director of Kickboxer: Vengeance, has finished writing Kickboxer: Armageddon, the upcoming third entry of the rebooted Kickboxer franchise.
In a recent interview with TMS, Logothetis had this to say: “If you like Retaliation, Armageddon will blow your mind. The kind of fight sequences that I have for this are going to take us to a totally different level. I have a oner planned that’s going to top the oner in Retaliation. It’s going to take us to a completely different level and we’re just excited and we’re just looking forward to having a lot of fun doing that.”
Logothetis added that he’s bringing back Mike Tyson (Ip Man 3), soccer star Ronaldinho and Christopher Lambert (The Hunted). Other possible appearances include MMA stars George St. Pierre (who had a role in Kickboxer: Vengeance), Uriah Faber, Cody Garbrandt, rapper Snoop Dog – not to mention, a second soccer star, Neymar. And obviously, Alain Moussi, will be returning as Kurt Sloane. The director doesn’t reveal if series regulars Jean-Claude Van Damme or Sara Malakul Lane will be returning.
Kickboxer: Armageddon starts filming in Las Vegas in March. We’ll keep you updated on the film’s progress as we learn more. In the mean time, look out for Kickboxer: Retaliation, which hits Blu-ray & DVD on March 13, 2018.
