Twenty-five years after Arnold Schwarzenegger brought cop/kindergarten teacher John Kimble to life in Ivan Reitman’s comedy Kindergarten Cop, another Expendables star is apparently filling his overlarge shoes for the sequel. Behind-the-scenes photos of Dolph Lundgren on the set of Don Michael Paul’s Kindergarten Cop 2 have been sweeping across the internet today, providing strong evidence that this film is indeed happening.
Currently filming in Vancouver, the sequel was scripted by David H. Steinberg (American Pie 2) and, according to Manly Movie, will follow a plot that goes something like this: The new Kindergarten Cop (Lundgren) and his Indian sidekick Sanjit are tracking down a flash drive that’s gone missing from the Federal Witness Protection Program. As you might have guessed, it somehow finds its way into a kindergarten class. As you also might have guessed, this predicament allows Lundgren to take on the guise of an elementary school teacher, schmooze a lady teacher down the hall, and defeat scores of Albanian bad guys. Sign me up!
The comedy is due out sometime next year and we will hopefully be hearing more official news from the Universal Family Entertainment – ie home video distribution – production soon. While this sequel might never see the light of day in movie theaters, there’s good money on it scoring a VOD premiere. Be sure to head over to Manly Movie to check out some of images from the set. Here’s an example just to prove that, yes, Lundgren is actually doing this:
