Last week we learned the joyous news that Jean-Claude Van Damme had been cast in the Kickboxer remake. The movie has quite a cast, many of them drawn from the world of martial arts. Stunt man/martial artist Alain Moussi (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is playing the lead (Van Damme is playing more of a mentor this time out) alongside George St. Pierre (Bartoc from Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Dave Bautista (Riddick, Guardians of the Galaxy).
And now we’ve got word that MMA fighter and Haywire star Gina Carano has joined the film. Hit the jump for more details on her role, which is something of a break from the archetype one might expect her to play. The Kickboxer remake is currently shooting in New Orleans before moving onto Thailand. John Stockwell is directing.
