The Scott Adkins led sequel Accident Man 2 is one of this year’s most anticipated films and with a high-octane cast that includes Andy Long, Sarah Chang and Zara Phythian, the action will surely be elevated from the original that already boasted some extreme fight action.
The film is currently in post-production and the movie’s lead has given us a sampling of what to expect from his altercation with Jackie Chan stunt team alum Andy Long who will be playing one of Mike Fallon’s assailants this time around. Adkins was working on some ADR (additional dialogue recording) for the pic, and he showed eager fans a brief snippet of the fight which was being played on the monitor. Check it out in the link below!
The video doesn’t show us all as Adkins cleverly cuts us off while saying “That’s all you get to see for now.” It definitely is just enough to whet our appetites for the follow up which will surpass the action done by the first entry. The fight between Adkins and Long looks as advertised with all the adrenalized flair and signature skills from both action stars. It without a doubt harkens back to Adkins; Undisputed days and this fight looks to be a true showstopper.
Adkins also shared a new image on social media of himself in full on Accident Man mode!
Let us not forget the high-flying image of Adkins delivering one damaging aerial kick to Poco The Killer Clown played by Beau Fowler. There’s nothing like some serious clown ass kicking in an action movie.
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.
Fans were also treated to a special sizzle reel which highlights the signature and extreme action fight sequences we are in store for. With a cast including Sarah Chang, Andy Long Nguyen and Zara Phythian who was just recently announced, this one should surpass the original in terms of adrenaline.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more details to come as Accident Man 2 is in post-production and is expected to kick its way to a release sometime this year!
