While the action-comedy Black Dynamite didn't exactly set the box office on fire when it was released in 2009, the blaxploitation parody has developed a cult following. Star Michael Jai White revealed at the Tribeca Film Festival that plans are in the works for Black Dynamite 2, which could go before cameras sooner rather than later. Here's what the actor had to say about this sequel.
Black Dynamite may start shooting this year says Michael Jai White
"We hope to shoot Black Dynamite 2 at the end of the year."
Michael Jai White starred as the title character, and also co-wrote the screenplay with Byron Minns and director Scott Sanders. It isn't known if there is a script in place, or if Scott Sanders will return to the helm.
No plot specifics were given, although the actor-writer is toying with the idea of setting this sequel in the 1980s. The actor-writer is also developing Black Dynamite: The Animated Series for Adult Swim.
Black Dynamite was released October 16th, 2009 and stars Michael Jai White, Arsenio Hall, Tommy Davidson, Kevin Chapman, Richard Edson, Darrel Heath, Buddy Lewis, Pete Antico. The film is directed by Scott Sanders.
