‘Kindergarten Cop 2’ With Dolph Lundgren Is a Real Movie That Is Filming Right Now
It only took a quarter of a century, but the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger semi-classic (emphasis on the “semi”) Kindergarten Cop is finally getting a sequel! A direct-to-video sequel. From the guy who made Jarhead 2. Starring Dolph Lundren.
And it’s already filming! There are set pictures and everything.
The news comes to us via Manly Movie, a website that presumably covers cinema of the masculine persuasion. And let’s face it, there’s nothing more macho than a tough-as-nails cop with an inscrutable European accent infiltrating a classroom of six year olds to take down a criminal. This cop will learn valuable lessons about having a softer side and caring for children. Because real men know that public education is the real battlefield.
We’ve got to hand it to the people who pulled this whole shebang together – casting Dolph Lundgren in Kindergarten Cop 2 is an inspired choice. After all, he is literally the poor man’s Arnold Schwarzenegger. Like Schwarzenegger, he’s a musclebound action star who has spent his entire career wrestling with his accent. And like Schwarzenegger, his musclebound physique often betrays the fact that he’s a whip-smart guy. Arnold was governor of Kah-lee-forn-ya. Lundgren has a Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering. As the low-budget, B-movie version of Arnold, Lundgren’s perfect for the low-budget, B-movie sequel to Kindergarten Cop.
Here’s how Manly Movie describes the sequel:
The new Kindergarten Cop is a leading man type with an Indian sidekick named Sanjit. They’re on the trail of a missing flash drive from the Federal Witness protection program. Somehow it’s wound up in a kindergarten class. Flimsy premise, but it puts him side by side with a beautiful teacher and they hit it off. There’s also bad guys involved– this time they’re Albanian.
Damn Albanians. When will they leave our American schools alone? We only have so many Swedish cops we can send undercover!
