Sudden Death 2 (2020) -- S: Michael Jai White

Action staple Michael Jai White (“Undisputed” franchise, “The Dark Knight”), fresh off flapping flares and kicking butt on “Undercover Brother 2”, is reuniting with Universal’s direct-to-disc division for a sequel to Jean-Claude Van Damme classic “Sudden Death”.

The follow-up to John Hyams’ 1995 super-super-super-entertaining Diet-“Die Hard” is before the cameras in Winnipeg under the direction of “THRILLER” helmer Dallas Jackson. As in the original film, it’s up to an audacious security guard to fend off gun-toting rogues in a crowded sports arena.

Marrese Crump (“The Protector 2”) and comic Gary Owen also star in “Sudden Death 2” (aka “Welcome to Sudden Death”).

Considering the locations they’re utilizing, and the top-caliber director and star, I’m confident this is going to be well worth keeping tabs on.

Griff Furst and Kim Todd are producing for 1440 Productions and Universal Home Entertainment.

The production wraps September 4.

Not much info about this, but Gary Owen (presumably the comic relief) posted this video during production. Currently filming in Winnipeg.



It's supposed to come on DVD, BD and Digital next summer.

Sudden Death is a "classic" now? News to me.

Thanks Universal for keeping the DTV movie market alive I guess.

Considering how far the tongue was placed in the cheek for the entire article, the use of the word classic didn't even jump out at me.

It did say Jean-Claude Van Damme classic.

Never said it was some kind of all-time classic.

Official title= Welcome to Sudden Death

Will be released on Netflix in June 2020



https://deadline.com/2019/08/sudden-...lm-1202672269/


Dallas Jackson, best known as writer-director-producer of Blumhouse’s urban slasher Thriller (2018), begins filming his sophomore project this week in Winnipeg as production begins on Welcome to Sudden Death for Universal 1140 and Netflix. Netflix has scheduled the film for a June 2020 release.

Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite, Tyson) and comedian Gary Owen (Daddy Day Care, Get Hard) lead the cast in a feature described as “martial arts heavy …with a comedic twist.” Welcome to Sudden Death will be a “new spin” remake of Sudden Death (1995), which starred Jean-Claude Van Damme.

They should rename the movie title to "Welcome to the clusterfuck".

He's a working C-List actor. He will star in practically anything that lets him use his martial arts and gives him a paycheck.
