As we have heard through Alex Meraz’s tweets, he has been preparing for a new cage fighting role. And yesterday, during the Chicago Twilight Convention, he let the crowd know that the film is titled Never Back Down 2 and will begin filming in Louisiana starting this Sunday.
Although the movie isn’t listed on IMDB yet, we’ve done a little digging and have found out some general information.
Cast Along with Alex Meraz, the cast will include Michael Jai White (Gambol from The Dark Knight), Dean Guyer, Todd Duffee, Scott Epstein, Jillian Murray, and Even Peters.
Movie description: Four fighters from different backgrounds come together to train under an ex-MMA rising star and then ultimately have to fight each other and the traitor in their midst.
Also, whereas the original Never Back Down focused on street-fighting, this one will focus on MMA (mixed martial arts).
