There is a LOT of big star power in Universal Pictures' arsenal for this film, the first of a new trilogy with Diesel also taking on the task of producer along with Neal Moritz. In addition, with the presence of Jaa, and action stars like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Jason Statham and his fellow The Expendables 3 co-star, actress and UFC champion Ronda Rousey on-board, the seventh installment of the franchise will no doubt be stepping up its efforts in the hand-to-hand department after rocking the show with Joe Taslim in the summer blockbuster smash hit, Fast And Furious 6.
That said, anyone who has seen Diesel's films knows he is no stranger to delivering hard-hitting action. And it is usually pretty practical for an actor to train, whether for personal health and/or, self-defense, or even for a role. So we'll see how far this goes. At any rate, there was no way I could NOT blog about this. Thanks for understanding! ^_^
