RELEASE DATE: September 6, 2016
Martial arts star Scott Adkins (Close Range, Zero Tolerance, Wolf Warrior) is filling in Van Damme’s shoes for the sequel; and filmmaker Roel Reiné (Death Race 2-3) is taking over directing duties for renowned Hong Kong filmmaker, John Woo, who directed the original 1993 classic.
Hard Target 2 (read our review) will continue “the human hunt” in the jungles between Burma and Thailand. “What an honor to work for one of your idols. Hard Target 2 should be an ode to the old films John Woo made in Hong Kong,” said Reiné (via Manly Movie).
The film also stars Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Rhona Mitra (Shooter), Ann Truong (Sonnigsburg), Temuera Morrison (Green Lantern), Adam Saunders (A Heartbeat Away), Jamie Timony (The Hunter), Peter Hardy (Chopper), Sean Keenan (Lockie Leonard), Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja), Sahajak Boonthanakit (Zero Tolerance), Patrick Kazu Tang (Dragonwolf) and Anteo Quintavalle (D is for Detroit). Yanin Vismitananda (Chocolate) is also attached to appear.
In a recent interview, here’s what Adkins had to say about Hard Target 2: I guess I am continuing to walk the path previously walked by JCVD (laughing) It’s just a coincidence I promise you, but yes, I do keep getting involved with projects that are sequels to his earlier work or I am co-starring with him… the director really knows how to shoot action and get the best look and epic production value for his movies… there are moments that pay homage to the original and we are doing everything we can to deliver a worthy sequel… and a hell of an action film in its own right.”
