Nicolas Cage is set to star in “Jiu jitsu” movie. The movie in question is a martial arts actioner based on the comic book of the same name.
Now here’s where things get a bit sketchy – Cage and the gang will be squaring up against alien invaders of all things.
“Jiu Jitsu” centers on an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters facing fearsome alien invaders in a battle for Earth every six years. Cage’s character and his team of Jiu Jitsu fighters band together with Moussi’s character to defeat the Brax.
“‘Jiu Jitsu’ is guaranteed to satisfy the millions of martial arts and science fiction lovers across the globe with world class martial artists, stunt men go-to expert Alain Moussi joining superstar Nicolas Cage for some formidable, no holds barred fight sequences set in exotic Burma,” Logothetis said.
According to IMDB, the release date is set for July 2020.
A teaser trailer has just been released showing a glimpse of what the movie will look like:
The $27.5 million film is currently in post-production and was shot entirely in Cyprus.
From writer-director-producer Dimitri Logothetis, Jiu Jitsu will see Cage star alongside Alain Moussi, who is a BJJ black belt belt under Rigan Machado and headlined the last two Kickboxer movies, in which Logothetis was involved.
Based on the comic book of the same name, which Logothetis wrote with Jim McGrath, the film features Moussi as a Jiu Jitsu fighter who every six years must face off against an alien invader, Brax. Cage’s character teams up with him in a battle to defeat Brax.
