Millions of moviegoers heard Nicolas Cage’s voice as Spider-Man Noir in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Currently, the actor has a lot of films in the works including the sequel to The Croods. Next up is Jiu Jitsu, and it definitely caught our attention. The movie will be a blend of martial arts and sci-fi where jiu-jitsu fighters are the only protection against an alien threat, and Cage will be playing the role of Wylie.

Jiu Jitsu is based on the comic of the same name by writers Dimitri Logothetis and Jim McGrath, with Logothetis (Kickboxer: Retaliation) attached as the film’s director and producer. Cage will be joined by Alain Moussi (Kickboxer: Retaliation).

Synopsis: Every six years, an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters faces a fearsome alien invader in a battle for Earth. For thousands of years, the fighters that protect Earth have played by the rules…until now. When Jake Barnes (Alain Moussi), a celebrated war hero and master Jiu-Jitsu fighter, refuses to face Brax, the indomitable leader of the invaders, the future of humanity hangs in the balance. Injured and suffering from severe amnesia, Jake is captured by a military squad unequipped to fight the merciless intruder who have descended upon the planet. After a brutal alien attack on the military squad, Jake is rescued by Wylie (Nicolas Cage), and a team of fellow Jiu-Jitsu fighters who must help him recover his memory and regain his strength in order to band together and defeat Brax in an epic battle that will once again determine the fate of mankind.

Mortal Kombat fans should feel right at home with the film’s premise about Earth fighters battling an outside threat.

“After we successfully reintroduced the Kickboxer franchise to a new generation of martial arts fans with the sixth and seventh entries in the series, we set out to up the ante with a Sci-Fi Martial Arts franchise that could bring the same kind of intensity and longevity to a new arena,” Dimitri Logothetis said in the press release. “Jiu Jitsu is guaranteed to satisfy the millions of martial arts and science fiction lovers across the globe with world class martial artists, stuntmen go-to expert Alain Moussi joining superstar Nicolas Cage for some formidable, no holds barred fight sequences set in exotic Burma.”
