Steve Oedekerk Confirms “Kung Pow” Sequel

At Dragonfest this past weekend, writer/director/actor Steve Oedekerk confirmed that after thirteen years, he is going to make a sequel to Kung Pow: Enter The Fist. The original martial arts comedy had Oedekerk as “The Chosen One,” and it used new footage of Oedekerk, as well as Jennifer Tung and actor/stuntman Leo Lee, inserted into over-dubbed footage of the 1976 Jimmy Wang Yu kung fu film, Tiger And Crane Fist. The results were an intentionally cheesy, and very funny, martial arts spoof that developed a bit of a cult following since it’s release in 2002.

The first film was pretty absurd, but it was a lot of fun, so hopefully the sequel will be as well. There is no word yet on a time frame for a release.
