SYNOPSIS: One year after the events of “Kickboxer: Vengeance”, Kurt Sloan has vowed never to return to Thailand. However, while gearing up for a MMA title shot, he finds himself sedated and forced back into Thailand, this time in prison. He is there because the ones responsible want him to face a 6’8″ 400 lbs. beast named Mongkut and in return for the fight, Kurt will get two million dollars and his freedom back. Kurt at first refuses, in which a bounty is placed on his head as a way to force him to face Mongkut. Kurt soon learns he will have no other choice and will undergo his most rigorous training yet under some unexpected mentors in order to face Mongkut in hopes to regain his freedom.
‘Kickboxer: Retaliation’ is set for release on January 26, 2018.
UPDATE: Latest on-set photo featuring ALAIN MOUSSI and HAFTHOR JULIUS BJORNSSON aka “The Mountain”!
UPDATE: Take a FIRST look at MIKE TYSON on the set throwing it down with ALAIN MOUSSI!
UPDATE: PAIGE VANZANT have pulled out of the film due to her commitment to the UFC. VanZant stated:
“Fighting definitely comes first. I’ve recently declined to be in the ‘Kickboxer’ movie because I want to be 100 percent for this fight and train 100 percent and filming that movie was kind of going to get in the way. We couldn’t get a date set that worked with my fight schedule.”
Lets hope the producers keep her in mind and possibly work out a good schedule for her to join the third ‘Kickboxer’ instead.
UPDATE: The cast is getting bigger and badder as former boxing Champion MIKE TYSON is set to join in on the fun!
Most recently seen trading punches with Donnie Yen in ‘Ip Man 3’, Tyson will be portraying “a tough convict forced into a world of fighting behind bars” in KICKBOXER: RETALIATION.
Producer ROBERT HICKMAN stated: “This is a monumental moment for us. We have already signed on 14 champions from the sporting world, mostly decorated fighters from the UFC, being able to add Mike Tyson as a cast member adds a whole new element and excitement to the film.”
UPDATE: Current UFC darling PAIGE VANZANT have joined the cast of KICKBOXER: RETALIATION!
Producers wrote a part specifically for VanZant after seeing her on ABC’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’. She is set to play ‘Gamon’, “a 26-year-old with high-level fighting and shooting skills with some strong criminal connections too.”
Producer ROB HICKMAN stated: “Paige is the up-and-coming darling of the UFC and her star quality shines through on camera. She’s a tremendous asset to the film both as an onscreen talent and as a trained fighter.”
Production is currently underway in California and Neveda before moving to Asia in June.
UPDATE: The official Poster for the film (above) have been released, and as you can see Hafthor Julius Björnsson aka “The Mountain” from TV’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ will be playing the villain!
DIMITRI LOGOTHETIS, co-writer and producer of ‘Vengeance’, will take over directing duties this time around.
JEAN CLAUDE VAN DAMME is also expected to return along with ALAIN MOUSSI to battle “against a syndicate of criminals.”
Filming on KICKBOXER: RETALIATION will begin this May in Thailand.
