It may be hard for some of us Americans to believe, but our friends across the pond in England are just now getting to see the wonderment that is Black Dynamite. It’s been available on DVD and Blu-ray here in the states for months and we’ve all watched it several times, laughing our asses off the whole way. Finally our tea drinking brothers get to feel the same.
While making the press rounds in support of the Black Dynamite release abroad, Michael Jai White revealed to The Mirror that he’s already working on a sequel. White told the press that there were a lot of things they wanted to squeeze into the first film, but just didn’t have the time for. The idea for a sequel has been gestating in his brain for awhile now and he plans to have the film pick up right where the first left off.
“You know how Black Dynamite just grows in ridiculousness? Well, this will be a fitting sequel,” said White. Hopefully that means more naked ladies, more big guns, more kung fu action, and more throwing that shit before he walks in the room.
Black Dynamite didn’t break any box office records in the states, but it’s funny retro vibe has given it somewhat of a cult status in the US, with some theaters playing the flick a la Rocky Horror Picture Show- with long engagements to crowds of excited fans.
I, for one, can dig it. Black Dynamite was a great movie that perfectly captured the blaxpoitation genre and Jai White is a tremendous action star, capable of kicking much ass. So while there may be no “official” news of a sequel (that is, money probably isn’t in place), Michael Jai White is keen to continue the story and is actively working on getting a sequel to the screens in the future.
