Like Vin [Diesel] in Riddick, Alain will make this movie very special, and this Kickboxer will be the start of an amazing franchise.”
Kickboxer tells the story of David and Kurt Sloan, who come from a fighting dynasty. David is lured to Hong Kong to fight but dies there and his brother arrives to seek revenge. As O’Shea said, “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?”
