I’ll admit I wasn’t a fan of the Never Back Down series. At least there was one good fight scene with MJW in the second one, and the less said about the first one the better. I’m actually looking forward to this film now that MJW is the main star and fighter. Toss in Nathan Jones along with Tony Jaa and…could this go the way of the Undisputed films? I hope so!
Enjoy the trailer below, but I wanna know when are we going to get a Blood and Bone sequel?
CULVER CITY, Calif. (Mar. 28, 2016) – Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight, Black Dynamite) returns in the next installment of the hard-hitting franchise NEVER BACK DOWN: NO SURRENDER, available on DVD and digital June 7 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The action-packed film follows former MMA champion Case Walker (White) as he travels to Thailand to train a friend for a major fight. When things go bad, Case finds himself back in the cage for the fight of his life. NEVER BACK DOWN: NO SURRENDER also stars Esai Morales (“NYPD Blue”), MMA icon Tony Jaa (Ong-bak franchise, The Raid 3), Nathan Jones (Mad Max: Fury Road), Josh Barnett (Occupation: Fighter, UFC 32), and Gillian Waters (Jackie Brown),
Former MMA champion Case Walker (Michael Jai White) has kept a low profile, winning small-time regional matches after refusing to join the powerful new leagues that push performance- enhancing drugs on their fighters. Walker is convinced by old friend and renowned fighter Brody James (Josh Barnett) to join him in Thailand and train him for a big fight against the undefeated and deadly Caesar Braga (Nathan Jones). During training, Brody is injured. Under pressure from an unscrupulous, high-powered promoter (Esai Morales), Walker agrees to replace James and fight his toughest opponent yet — but only on his own terms.
Directed by Michael Jai White, NEVER BACK DOWN: NO SURRENDER is from a story by Michael Jai White and Chris Hauty and a screenplay by Chris Hauty. It was produced by Craig Baumgarten and David Zelon.
