    May 12, 2014 - Brian O'Shea, CEO of The Exchange, has announced a deal to sell the big budget reboot of the 1989 classic KICKBOXER. The Exchange will begin selling this action packed remake at this year Cannes market.

    KICKBOXER will be directed by Chinese phenomenon Stephen Fung (TAI CHI ZERO, TAI CHI HERO) and produced hit maker Ted Field of Radar Pictures (RIDDICK Series, THE LAST SAMURAI). KICKBOXER will star UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre (CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER), and WWE superstar Dave Bautista (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.)

    The film will also be introducing Alain Moussi as its lead. Mr. Moussi is a world-renowned stunt man / martial artists, performing in such films as (X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, IMMORTALS, PACIFIC RIM, WHITEHOUSE DOWN).

    David and Kurt Sloan are the descendants of a well-known Venice, California dynasty of champions. Both are top-notch fighters and athletes in the prime of their lives. When David wins the Karate World Championship, a promoter lures him to Hong Kong despite Kurt's protests that the man is a crook. Not soon after, Kurt receives a letter from David and heads to Thailand to meet him. When he arrives, he discovers his brother is dead. The man responsible is the viscous Tong Po. Desperate to seek revenge, Kurt turns to Xian Chow, his brother's former mentor.

    The film is also produced by Dimitri Logothetis and Nick Celozzi. Mike Weber and Peter Meyer will executive produce as well as Brian O'Shea, Jeff Bowler and Nat McCormick for the Exchange.

    "I am very excited about KICKBOXER being in Cannes" said O'Shea, "we have a visionary director, a strong Hollywood producer, great cast and an action packed script based on a well known property - what more can you ask for?"

    They can't make this better than the original! Can't outdo Van Dammes drunken fighting and acting! And nobody does the slowmotion "arrraraahhhhhhaaaa" sounds better after hits/kicks.

    i'd watch a remake of Blood Sport, especially if it had all the cheesy 80s techno and long ass face stare downs. the "NERRRDDDS!" guy also played his biker buddy that got his ass kicked too, I think. that second clip is from Blood Sport

    but kickboxer? meh very generic movie

    As long as someone gets a coconut dropped on their belly after being asked if he's ready to protect this could be legit.
