Actor and martial artist Michael Jai White, who has recently wrapped up working on his latest action flick “Favela”, said on his Twitter that a sequel to his 2009 film “Blood and Bone” is in the works.
White was brief, only saying that the sequel has the “same writer”, and that the film will have “more action” and a “better story”. He also said that “Blood & Bone 2” would explain why Bone ended up in prison in the first place.
White, who has recently wrapped working on his new film “Favela”, also shared a picture of him doing a fight scene from the film.
Favela is the first installment in the “CODENAME: FALCON” franchise.
The story of “Favela” has ex-marine John “Falcon” Chapman (White) going to Brazil, to hunt down the killers of his sister, in the process discovering an underground world of drugs, prostitution, and police corruption ruled by the Japanese mafia. Check out the picture below:
One of the fighters in the scene is Lateef Crowder, a famous capoera-style fighter, who has been in “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth”, and “Tekken”.
Another fighter, as it could be assumed, is Ron Yuan – a veteran actor, writer and director, who has worked with White on numerous projects before.
Despite earlier reports by IndieWire about Isaac Florentine being the director of “Favela”, the IMDb lists Ernie Barbarash as the one responsible for directing.
Barbarash knows a thing or two about action, as he previously worked with Jean-Claude Van Damme on “6 Bullets” and “Assasination Games”.
