The overwhelming success of The Expendables has all the old dogs in Hollywood coming out of semi-retirement. According to a report from Variety, Wesley Snipes will join forces with “Walker Texas Ranger” aka Chuck Norris for an upcoming martial arts comedy. Not only will the film feature these two veterans but it will be filled with cameos from the genre’s biggest stars. Find out who’ll make an appearance…
According to Snipes, this ” multi-racial action comedy is a mix of ‘Kung Fu Hustle’ and ‘Meet the Parents.’” The film is titled Master Daddy and it will be produced by his Maandi Media Entertainment with Tayrona Entertainment Group. The film will feature cameos and performances from dozens of martial arts and fighting arts stars including Norris, Sonny Chiba, Frazier, Gracie, Hung, Inosanto, Jaa, Rhee, Kim, Lee Mosely, Bob Wall, Rampage, Anderson Silva and Ron Van Cleff. Musicians Rock Steady, Jabbawakkies and Quest Crew will also perform.
What is this? A mix between The Expendables and Step Up? Why are they casting dance teams? And isn’t Norris over 70 years old or something? He can’t get down like he used to. Even when he was on “Walker” we noticed his stunt doubles doing some fairly easy moves that he used to do during his prime. We don’t know how we feel about this.
What do you think of Snipes and Norris joining forces?
