Studios may hope for “endless” franchises, but the faces of those franchises have an unfortunate habit of aging out or moving on. So the Han Solo torch gets passed from Harrison Ford to Alden Ehrenreich, the Rocky franchise turns into the Creed franchise, and James Bond continues to spark rumor after rumor about who could replace Daniel Craig.
And Matt Damon, who returns as everyone’s favorite amnesiac spy this month in Jason Bourne, has made his peace with that inevitable fate. Damon acknowledged the likelihood that he’ll be replaced someday by a younger actor as Bourne, and told press that while he’s “very excited” to reprise his role this time, he’s “totally fine” with the role getting recast eventually.

You may remember back in March we highlighted the teaser trailer for Kickboxer: Vengeance, yet another installment in the franchise that starred Jean-Claude Van Damme. The original Kickboxer from 1989 followed JCVD as a fighter named Kurt Sloane who must learn the kickboxing art of Muay Thai in order to avenge the death of his brother. Kickboxer: Vengeance was taking that story and updating it for contemporary audiences with Alain Moussi playing the Kurt Sloane character and Jean-Claude Van Damme playing his mentor. It’s basically a reboot of the original, and now it appears it will also be the beginning of a new franchise.
Earlier this week, Jean-Claude Van Damme took to his Facebook page to sign the contract for Kickboxer: Retaliation, a sequel that will follow Vengeance. JCVD will return as the mentor to Alain Moussi as he’s taken forcibly back to Thailand to fend for his life against a new formidable foe. Find out more about the Kickboxer sequel below. Read More »
