Back in August we brought you the news that Dolph Lundgren was indeed filming a sequel to the 1990 film, Kindergarten Cop, and now we have some official pictures to prove it. Granted, this sequel from Universal 1440 Entertainment will be a home video release, but judging from how popular the original action-comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger remains 25 years later, this flick might quickly rocket right up to cult-classic status.
In order to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Kindergarten Cop, we happily share these new images from Kindergarten Cop 2 with you, and with thanks to reader Mike bringing it to our attention! Bill Bellamy (Any Given Sunday, TV’s Hot in Cleveland) also stars alongside Lundgren in the action-comedy directed by Don Michael Paul (Jarhead 2: Field of Fire, Tremors 5: Bloodlines) and written by David H. Steinberg (American Pie 2, Miss Dial). Keep an eye out for Kindergarten Cop 2 on Blu-ray/DVD in 2016.
Here’s how About.com, the exclusive provider of these new images, described the plot of Kindergarten Cop 2:
In Kindergarten Cop 2, Lundgren plays Agent Reed. Like in the original movie, Reed goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher, this time to recover a flash drive with sensitive information that was stolen from the Witness Protection Program. However, in addition to dealing with a handful of students, Reed also faces problems with the school’s “politically correct environment.”
Here’s what Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Universal 1440 Entertainment, had to say about the sequel/reboot:
“Kindergarten Cop grossed over $200 million worldwide and has been entertaining audiences of all ages. In this exciting reboot, we introduce a unique blend of humor and action to the next generation of viewers, as well as share a reimagined version of the story with longtime fans who have made this an enduring family favorite.”
