HARD TARGET 2: UNRATED EDITION Gets Plot, Release Details And More!

With martial arts action star Scott Adkins fresh into Marvel territory for Doctor Strange, it's high time we learned a little more about what he's been doing between this and finishing other upcoming hits like James Nunn's Eliminators, William Kaufman's Jarhead: The Siege and Isaac Florentine's Boyka: Undisputed IV. Alas, save some extra room in between for Roel Reine's latest, Hard Target 2 which has officially announced its completion in Thailand.

Unfortunately the press release fails to mention actress and martial arts sensation Jeeja Yanin, but considering the updates she's shared on social media I surely wouldn't deny she's in this one for its release in the Fall of next year. John Woo produces this one following up his 1993 hit film, though we'll see how Reine's contribution fares, and it'll be fun to see Kazu Patrick Tang's choreography on screen again.
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Forced into a deadly cat-and-mouse game, a disgraced mixed martial arts fighter is hunted through the jungles of Southeast Asia in Hard Target 2, wrapped production in Thailand. A no-holds-barred battle for survival through treacherous terrain inspired by John Woo's hard-driving 1993 action-thriller, Hard Target 2 Unrated Edition premieres exclusively on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD Fall 2016 from Universal 1440 Entertainment, the original content production arm of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. 
"We're extremely excited to have the opportunity to reboot this much-loved action film for a new generation," says Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. "With exciting hand-to-hand combat, mind-blowing stunts and a plot that raises the stakes even higher, Hard Target 2 will thrill fans of the original as well as and anybody who enjoys a top-notch, adrenaline-fueled action-adventure." 
Filming through November 21, 2015, Hard Target 2 boasts an impressive international ensemble including Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum, The Expendables 2), Robert Knepper ("Prison Break," Hitman), Rhona Mitra (Shooter, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), Ann Truong ("Sonnigsburg," "Neighbours"), Temuera Morrison (Star Wars Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith, Green Lantern), Adam Saunders ("Blue Water High," A Heartbeat Away), Jamie Timony (The Hunter, The Eye of the Storm), Peter Hardy (Chopper, Sweat), Sean Keenan ("Lockie Leonard," "Puberty Blues"), Sahajak Boonthanakit (Man with the Iron Fists 2, Zero Tolerance) and Anteo Quintavalle (D is for Detroit, Bang Bang).

  1. I'm super excited for this film! Jeeja Yanin actually wrote me back on Facebook about her involvement in the film & had this to say, "I had a small role in this one but it should be great :)"
