Jiu Jitsu Cast Adds Tony Jaa, Frank Grillo, Rick June and More

-

Tony Jaa (The Ong-Bak franchise, Furious 7), Frank Grillo (Captain America and The Purge franchises), Rick Yune (Olympus Has Fallen, The Fast and The Furious), Marie Avgeropoulos (The 100, 50/50) and JuJu Chan (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, Wu Assassins) have joined Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Nicolas Cage (National Treasure) and Alain Moussi (Kickboxer: Retaliation) in the Jiu Jitsu cast.

From writer, director and producer Dimitri Logothetis, the martial arts action saga is based on the comic book of the same name. Martin Barab is also producing. Logothetis wrote the script with Jim McGrath.

The film is officially described as follows: Every six years, an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters faces a vicious alien in a battle to protect Earth. For thousands of years, the fighters that protect Earth have played by the rules…until now. When celebrated war hero Jake Barnes (Alain Moussi) is defeated by Brax, the Alien invader, the future of humanity hangs in the balance. Injured and suffering from amnesia, Jake is rescued by Wylie (Nicolas Cage), Keung (Tony Jaa), Harrigan (Frank Grillo) and his team of fellow Jiu Jitsu fighters. They must help Jake to regain his strength in order to band together and defeat Brax in an epic battle that will once again determine the fate of mankind.

Highland Film Group is handling worldwide sales. Principal production is scheduled to begin on June 24.
