‘Kickboxer’ Reboot Punches Up Cast With Scott Adkins, Tony Jaa

Scott Adkins and Tony Jaa have stepped into the arena for the reboot of Jean-Claude Van Damme’s 1989 actioner “Kickboxer.”

Producers are Ted Field of Radar Films, Dimitri Logothetis and Nick Celozzi. Mike Weber and Peter Meyer will exec produce.

Stephen Fung (“Tai Chi Zero”) is directing. The story follows Moussi’s character, who travels to Thailand where he must learn the secrets of kickboxing to avenge his brother’s death.

With the addition of Adkins and Jaa, the film features stars with more than 20 martial arts disciplines. Adkins’ credits include “The Bourne Ultimatum” and “The Expendables 2.” Jaa starred in the “Ong Bak” films and “The Protector.”
