I wish the trailer focused more on the fight scene between Michael Jai White and Kimbo Slice. That’s sort of a dream match up. Don’t get me wrong, the action scenes look good, and Jai White can still kick some serious ass… but Kimbo Slice can break some real bones.
Blood and Bone revolves around ex-con Isaiah Bone (Michael Jai White), a new force in LA’s underground street fighting scene. When he takes down the reigning champ, the local mob boss wants to enter Bone in a series of high-stakes international matches. Bone’s refusal sets off an explosive showdown between two powerful enemies with everything at stake. The film is directed by Ben Ramsey (Dragonball: Evolution) from a screenplay by Michael Andrews (Dunsmore). Christopher Eberts (Outlander, Half Past Dead), Arnold Rifkin (Live Free or Die Hard) and Todd Traina serve as executive producers. Blood and Bone was produced by Nick Simunek, Matthew Binns and Michael Mailer.
The film also stars Julian Sands, Eamonn Walker, Bob “The Beast” Sapp, Ernest “The Cat” Miller, Ron Yuan, Tanoai Reed and Gina Carano.
Blood and Bone will be available on DVD September 15, 2009, and will feature commentary with director Ben Ramsey and and cinematographer Roy Wagner, along with actors Michael Jai White, Dante Basco and Michelle Belegrin. The DVD will also feature a making-of segment.
