The last time I posted about the upcoming sequel to The Martial Arts Kid, The Martial Arts Kid 2: Payback, I was informing everybody about the crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo. The campaign for the film, as of this writing on 1/15/2018, is in effect. For the next 2 months, we, as an audience have the opportunity to help fund this project to make it one of the most anticipated independent films of 2018. The Martial Arts Kid 2: Payback is the sequel to the award-winning family film, The Martial Arts Kid, starring legendary martial arts actors Don “The Dragon” Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock. The official press release is as follows:
As of January 15th, 2018, the IndieGoGo Campaign to raise extra funds for THE MARTIAL ARTS KID 2: PAYBACK is LIVE and ACTIVE! The sequel will be bigger, with a larger cast, more locations, greater action, and a lot more danger.
Once again we will be using the largest number of real martial arts Grand Masters, Masters and Champions as have ever appeared on screen before; breaking our own record. We need your help to make this sequel something we can all be proud of. Join the Dragons: Cynthia Rothrock (Aunt Cindy) and Don Wilson (Uncle Glen) as we create something special together. And don’t forget that we will have some terrific perks for everyone involved.
The INDIEGOGO is now LIVE!
Crowdfunding Pitch Video:
Director Michael Baumgarten returns to direct this sequel to the well-received original film. Cynthia Rothrock and Don “The Dragon” Wilson also return in their respective roles as Uncle Glen and Aunt Cindy. I gave the first film some pretty high marks, so I will try to post on the campaign’s progress over the next couple of months. I hope that anybody who has seen The Martial Arts Kid is as excited as I am for this upcoming sequel. For anybody who may be interested in the film, I will post a link to the official IndieGoGo site for the film down below. The site will provide more information on the film, cast and crew as well as perks for people who wish to donate.
