A while back it was revealed that we were getting a sequel to Hard Target, John Woo’s 1993 manly movie starring Jean Claude Van Damme. Roel Reine (director of The Condemned 2) was revealed as the director, while John Woo himself would produce. Things beyond that were only speculative.
Until now. We can reveal that the lead in this movie is already on location.
Who is the lead in this movie? None other than Scott Adkins. He is in Thailand right now preparing for the movie, a set picture has emerged of Scott in ‘Thailand and rehearsing for next project with Master Seng of the famous Seng Stunt Team.’ (see below). Obviously, you now know that this ‘next project’ is Hard Target 2.
‘In the second part, human hunting continues in the jungles between Burma and Thailand‘. Director Roel Reine says of the movie; ‘What an honour to work for one of your idols. Hard Target 2 should be an ode to the old films John Woo was in Hong Kong.’ So will this movie bring the goods? Well, Scott recently said on his Facebook timeline that poor DTVs were a thing of the past.
