Thai supermodel Sara Malakul Lane has joined the cast of the “Kickboxer” remake at Radar Pictures.
Stunt performer-turned-actor Alain Moussi stars in the project as Kurt Sloane, a young man who travels to Thailand where he must learn the secrets of the kickboxer to avenge his brother’s death at the hands of Tong Po (played by “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor Dave Bautista).
Lane will play Sloane’s love interest, a detective investigating his brother’s death. Jean-Claude Van Damme, who played Kurt in the 1989 original, returns for the remake in the role of the mentor who helps train Kurt.
UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre also stars in the film which John Stockwell is directing. Production kicked off this week.
