Wee Ooo Wee Squeak! It’s been 13 years since KUNG POW!: ENTER THE FIST brought it’s ridiculousness to the masses and while the end of that film jokingly teased a sequel, it seems like creator Steve Oedekirk may up for shooting one after all!
The end of the film left a sort of teaser that would be Kung Pow II: Tongue of Fury. For years, Oedekerk had mentioned that he was trying to find a way to develop it and how to go about making this sequel. Well, something must have finally clicked.
On July 19 at the Dragonfest convention in Burbank, California, Steve Oedekerk made the official announcement that after thirteen years, he is finally going ahead with Kung Pow II. What’s going to happen with The Chosen One on his next outing? That remains a mystery, but the fact that Oedekerk finally announced it must mean he has a plan set in motion to make this happen.
Oedekerk hasn’t been too busy in the writing/directing department lately, but given the success of KUNG FURY, a second KUNG POW makes sense. There’s obviously a market for kung fu and ridiculous antics,
What are your thoughts?
