Production looks like it’s finally getting under way for the upcoming sequel Accident Man 2 which stars Scott Adkins as Mike Fallon. The assassin is known for making his hits look like accidents and this time around, Fallon is up to his neck in trouble.
Adkins has shared a first look image from the set of the follow up where he’s sporting a new biker jacket and looking ready to take on all opponents.
Adkins recently shedded some light on the project through an Instagram post where he gave fans a brief synopsis for the follow up.
I got the chance to chat with Scott recently for his new oner action-thriller One Shot and he gave us more of an in depth look at the plot at the end of the interview. Listen at around the 11 minute mark to hear Scott talk about what Mike Fallon will be up against this time around!
Jesse V. Johnson helmed the first film which is based on the character Mike Fallon, AKA Accident Man, which was created by Pat Mills in 1991 in the underground UK comic Toxic! Adkins’ longtime collaborator Stu Small returns to pen the sequel. The popular character got his nickname due to the fact that he was an assassin who made his hits look like accidents.
The follow up has seen a transfer of directors this time around as George and Harry Kirby will take the reigns from Jesse V. Johnson for the highly anticipated sequel.
The two have cut their teeth in the industry and has managed to put out numerous projects via their K&K productions banner. George even brings a high level of stunt knowledge to the picture having done work on various MCU projects like Marvel’s Doctor Strange along with Sony’s recent hit Venom: Let There Be Carnage. He also worked on the action-thriller American Assassin which also featured Adkins.
Jackie Chan stuntman and actor Andy Long Nguyen as well as rising martial arts star Sarah Chang have recently joined the cast. Their roles are undisclosed at this time but I’m sure they’ll be taking on Scott in some high-octane fight action!
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to drop from the set of Accident Man 2 as production is underway!
