GSP Joins Cast Of Kickboxer Remake

When Georges St-Pierre was fairly new on the scene he used to talk in interviews about the influence Jean-Claude Van Damme had upon his life. In some ways it was his introduction to martial arts, as well as the push he needed to get involved in them.

Now many years later movie studios are ready to do a reboot of the classic fight flick “Kickboxer,” and they have called on St-Pierre for a role. According to international film sales and finance company The Exchange, the former UFC welterweight champion has signed on to take part in the remake of the 1989 film.

His role is as a supporting player, alongside pro wrestler and onetime MMA fighter Dave Bautista. The role made famous by Van Damme will be played by stunt man and martial artist Alain Moussi, in his debut as a leading man.

This will be St-Pierre’s fifth acting credit. His most notable role was as Georges Batroc in this year’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which is the No. 1 movie of 2014 with nearly $250 million in the U.S., and almost $700 million worldwide.
