‘Kickboxer’ Reboot: First Look at JCVD and Dave Bautista

Bautista And Moussi

Straight from the film’s official Twitter site come first Kickboxer: Vengeance photos, featuring original star Jean-Claude Van Damme, who now plays the mentor Master Durand, Dave Bautista as killer Tong Po and newcomer Alain Moussi as the new Kurt Sloane.

Directed by John Stockwell (In the Blood), the reboot of Kickboxer also stars the former MMA and UFC fighters Gina Carano and Georges St-Pierre, along with Tyrone Woodley, Joseph Valtellini and Sara Malakul Lane.

Kickboxer: Vengeance is set for release next year. Hopefully we should get to see a trailer soon. OMG, I don’t care if it’s cheesey or what, I’mma watch the sh*t outta this… just expecting to see Van Damme teaching Moussi to drunk dance.

Eric (Darren Shahlavi) and Kurt Sloan (Alain Moussi) are the 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 (Dave Bautista), he vows revenge. He trains with his brother’s mentor, Durand (Jean-Claude Van Damme), for a Muay Thai fight to the death with Tong Po. Durand first thinks Kurt impossible to train, but through a series of spiritual exercises and tests, Durand discovers that Kurt has a deeper strength that will carry him through his final showdown with Tong Po.
