After our news about Kindegarten Cop 2 went viral, word got back to Universal who has now given the movie an official press release. This is kind of unusual for such a small movie to get a press release this early. So I’m guessing the movie has pinged deeper into their radar than they were expecting. Maybe it will get a more ‘enthusiastic’ promotional window next year?

A fish-out-of-water tale with laughs for the entire family, the film stars Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables 3, Workaholics) and Bill Bellamy (White Collar, Royal Pains).

Assigned to recover sensitive stolen data, a gruff FBI agent (Dolph Lundgren) goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher, but the school’s liberal, politically correct environment is more than he bargained for.
