The sequel to the cult classic SAMURAI COP is here!

Stars Matt Hannon ("Joe Marshall") & Mark Frazer ("Frank Washington") return alongside Melissa Moore ("Peggy"), Cranston Komuro ("Fooj Fujiyama"), Gerald Okamura ("Okamura") and Robert Z'Dar (Yamashita) from the first film.

SYNOPSIS:

It's 25 years later, and Detective Frank Washington is forced to team up with his long estranged partner Joe Marshall to solve a series of assassinations being committed by a secret group of female vigilante killers.

THE ORIGINAL:

Produced in 1991, the original SAMURAI COP (director: Amir Shervan) continues to find a new generation of captive and rabid audiences through its recent revival on the midnight theatrical circuit and in film festivals.  Sold out crowds at the screenings have been uproarious with excitement for the film and fans galore have posted fan videos on Youtube, including a video game adaptation!

See the original trailer here:

 PRODUCTION:

The film will be shot in and around Los Angeles starting in late November with an intended premiere in festivals starting next summer followed by a theatrical release.

While we have a good portion of the film's budget, we want this Kickstarter Campaign to serve as a purpose where fans can contribute to its final formation.  Raising additional funds through Kickstarter will enable us to spend more time on action & fight scenes as well as to have improved CGI FX.

 We are die-hard cult movie fans and respect the work of Amir Shervan's original film and promise to bring this sequel into the modern age while maintaining the essence of the original.  Having the original actors (Matt Hannon, Mark Frazer, Robert Z'Dar, Melissa Moore, and Gerald Okamura) back will enable us to bring a lot of what you loved with their characters into this exciting sequel.  As you can see from the publicity pics, Matt and Mark have been frozen in time and are eager to continue where they left off in the previous film!

Our team has previously been involved in the distribution of such cult classics as John Woo's THE KILLER, Takashi Miike's GOZU, and restored and brought the kung fu epic MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE to a new generation of audiences and oversaw the restoration of the original SAMURAI COP, remastered to beautiful HD from its damaged 35mm film negatives.  We also restored Shervan's KILLING AMERICAN STYLE and will be following up with YOUNG REBELS and the never before seen GYPSY.

SPECIAL THANKS to Andrew Martin (Amir Shervan FB Fan Page), Carlo Vanstiphout/Tommy Maksymow (Samurai Cop FB Fan Page), 80sPictureHouseUK (Tina, Dave & Thom), Chris Armstrong (Wafu FM), Bristol Bad Film Club, Ryan Sorensen and Red Letter Media.

Take part of the #KeepItWarmChallenge!  Created by Heather Seebach of *Viewer Discretion Advised, you recreate your favorite scene from the original SAMURAI COP - and nominate fellow fans to do the same - in an effort to spread awareness of the SAMURAI COP 2 Kickstarter campaign.  If you do not want to recreate a scene, you must make a donation to the Kickstarter.  Make sure you add or embed our Kickstarter link to your video, too!  Here are the video meme entries submitted to us (so far):

Risks and challenges

While we have a good portion of the film's budget already in place, it is important that we are able to secure additional funding so that we will be able to spend more time rehearsing and producing action scenes along with being able to secure stronger CGI FX for this film. We will not be able to go into production unless we reach our goal.

We've put together a strong team of producers who have extensive experience in production and have had previous films in major film festivals & distribution. We are a team of people extremely passionate about this project and we hope that you share this passion with us!

Thank you for your support!!
