Just like The Expendables, I have officially started the Accident Man 2 updates as Scott Adkins has been sharing some BTS goodies as filming is well underway. This past weekend saw the introduction of Jackie Chan stunt team member alum Andy Long and it looks like he’ll be engaging in some extreme fisticuffs with the human special effect.
Adkins shared some videos on Instagram which showcases some of the choreography that’ll be in the fight. There was also some time for a little comedic time out as well.
Adkins recently shedded some light on the project through an Instagram post where he gave fans a brief synopsis for the follow up.
Accident Man is back and this time he must best the top assassins in the world, to protect the ungrateful son of a mafia boss, save the life of his only friend and rekindle his relationship with his maniacal father figure.
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 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.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to drop from the set of Accident Man 2 as production is underway!
