[UPDATED] BLOODSPORT Reboots In 2014, KICKBOXER Also Set For A Reboot

It really is been a couple of years since we have heard anything adhere to up from the announcements that the 1988 film, Bloodsport would get a revamp from Relativity Media, to be produced by Edward R. Pressman. Reports are now circulating that James McTeigue will direct helm the film in Austrailia as of Spring 2014, focusing on the life mercenaries who collide with the world of underground Brazilian Vale Tudo fighting, where it is just as what the name implies: Anything goes. McTeigue's credits consist of, but are not restricted to, the 2009 action adventure, Ninja Assassin, and the 2005 futuristic thriller, V For Vendetta.

The film was previously announced back in 2011 with a story by Taken writer Robert Mark Kamen and Salt helmer Phillip Noyce about an American who escapes to Brazil to support deal with the violence in Afghanistan. That story has been re-written by scribe Craig Rosenburg under McTeigue's supervision. It was also confirmed that significantly like the not too long ago announced Timecop reboot, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme would not be involved in the film, though there is no word yet on who will be cast.

For the record, the film is not to be confused with the upcoming all-female Hong Kong martial arts tourno epic, Lady Bloodsport, which is currently filming below a distinct studio.

It's as well early to inform, but with the prevalence that mixed martial arts continues to earn in key motion photographs, I am extremely interested in what style of action choreography we can anticipate. Some notable names in MMA film choreography consist of J.J. Perry (Warrior), Damon Caro (By no means Back Down), Larnell Stovall (Undisputed 3: Redemption) and Garrett Warren (Right here Comes The Boom). Of course 1 other name would be Donnie Yen, but I presume he's going to be quite busy. But let me know what you feel.

Stick around for further developments!

UPDATE (eight:52pm EST): Deadline has reported on Wednesday that casting is now underway actor/producer/filmmaker Stephen Fung, greatest recognized for his current steampunk kung fu action adventure releases of Tai Chi and Tai Chi Hero, is getting tapped by Radar Images for a reboot of the 1989 Van Damme classic, Kickboxer. Unrelated to director Albert Pyun's upcoming webseries primarily based on the identical franchise, Fung's film will be joined by screenwriters Jim McGrath and Dimitri Logothetis, the latter who will share producer credits with Ted Field and Nick Celozzi, and executive producers Mike Weber and Peter Meyer.
