Here’s some rare good news for you all as Samuel Goldwyn Films has officially announced that the highly anticipated Jesse V. Johnson helmed sequel The Debt Collector 2 is poised and ready to hit Digital Platforms and VOD on May 15th! Check out the official synopsis below!
Debt collectors French and Sue get to work doing what they do best – cracking skulls and breaking bones – as they chase down the various lowlifes who owe money to their boss, Tommy. They’re summoned to Las Vegas to collect from a dirty casino owner, who happens to be a vicious ex-lover of Sue’s. Meanwhile, a notorious drug kingpin is on the warpath to kill French and Sue to avenge his brother’s death. Facing danger from all angles, the pair will have no other choice but to fight their way out of an explosively dangerous situation.
Adkins and Mandylor star along with Vladimir Kulich, who returns from the original as well as new additions Mayling Ng, Louie Ski Carr, Charity Collins and Marina Sirtis.
I chatted with Adkins back in December for Ip Man 4: The Finale and he gave me some exclusive scoop about the sequel at the time and how it was possible given how the first one ended.
Here’s the thing. I was disappointed with how we ended the first movie and once we made it and edited the film together in my opinion and I don’t speak for Jesse Johnson as I think he has a different take on it but to me I thought we made a mistake and that we shouldn’t kill the two characters. Now my character, he didn’t die, you never see him die. I think we made a mistake and what we’re doing and I hope the audience will be on board with this is that they’ll be OK with it and we’re saying that Louis’ injuries were bad but somehow he made it through and that he’s been in a coma for sometime and my character French thinks that he is dead and one day Sue turns up and he’s alive and Tommy (Vladimir Kulich) took good care of him and hid him away from the people that wanted him dead. He’s been able to pull through and he died twice actually on the operating table but he was able to pull through and my charcter pulled through. We’re kind of rewriting what happened at the end of the last movie in the beginning of this film and we hope everyone goes along with it and the audience is going to be in for a good ride again with this one.
