Cynthia Rothrock and Don “The Dragon” Wilson to Star in The Martial Arts Kid

We’re kind of on a Cynthia Rothrock tip this week; fresh on the heels that she will be making a new film called Bitchfight, Rothrock and Don “The Dragon” Wilson are joining forces on a new martial arts movie called The Martial Arts Kid.

The plot is about a troubled teen from Detroit who begins to learn martial arts when he moves to a Florida beach town to live with his aunt (Rothrock) and uncle (Wilson).

Filming is set to begin in March with locations to include Florida and Los Angeles.

Rothrock and Wilson have also recently worked together on White Tiger which was directed by Toby Russell.

I’ve missed seeing Cynthia in movies and we’re excited to see her back and kicking ass once again. Looking forward to this and Bitchfight.

No word on a release date as yet, but it will likely be in 2015.
