Tony Jaa, Scott Adkins Join “Kickboxer” Remake

Action star Scott Adkins (“Zero Dark Thirty”) and martial arts legend Tony Jaa (“Ong Bak”) have joined the cast of Stephen Fung’s 3D remake of the 1989 Jean-Claude Van Damme action classic “Kickboxer” for Radar Films.

The pair join Dave Bautista (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) stunt man Alain Moussi (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”), and George St. Pierre (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) who were previously announced.

Moussi plays Kurt Sloan, a talented martial artist 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 (Bautista).

Ted Field, Dimitri Logothetis and Nick Celozzi will produce.
