Bad Asses, the action-packed follow-up to the 2012 cult hit Bad Ass, wrapped production last week in Los Angeles. Vietnam veteran Frank Vega (Danny Trejo; Machete) returns with a new partner in Bernie (Danny Glover; Lethal Weapon) as they clean up the streets and take the law into their own hands.
Since we last saw Frank, he followed his dream and opened a Community Center in East Los Angeles where he mentors young boxers, not only in the ring, but in life. When his prized student, Manny, gets in over his head with a bad crowd and winds up dead, Frank and Bernie team up, finding themselves ensnared in one life threatening predicament after another. Forced to escape using the only weapons they have - their wits and their fists - they must survive the onslaught of fury that is brought upon them and Frank's new found love from a high powered, politically connected foe, Leandro (Andrew Divoff; Lost).
Often hilarious with a touch of heart and romance, Bad Asses is produced by the team of Ben Feingold, Ash R. Shah, and Jim Busfield and sees the return of director Craig Moss who helmed Bad Ass in 2012. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (TCFHE) will handle worldwide distribution on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download for the film's release in early 2014 following a theatrical release setup by the producers at year end.
