Michael Jai White Starts Work on the Sequel to 'Black Dynamite'
Freeze, turkeys! After knocking out a conspiracy that went all the way up to Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon in The White House, blaxploitation hero Black Dynamite is looking to kick some more (and get some more) ass. The Mirror (via Film School Rejects) spoke to actor/writer Michael Jai White who revealed that he's working on a sequel to the blaxploitation action parody Black Dynamite. White said, "I've had the idea for Black Dynamite 2 for quite a while now, and it's gonna start where Black Dynamite left off . There's lots of things we didn't get a chance to do in the first one." After pimp-slapping the First Lady, what else is there?
White wasn't exactly forthcoming with details, but did say: "You know how Black Dynamite just grows in ridiculousness? Well, this will be a fitting sequel." So who knows what kinda crazy action and jive turkeys Black Dynamite will encounter. I enjoyed the hell out of the first one, but I'll admit that after the first hour or so, it gets a bit repetitive with different variations of the same jokes. Hopefully the sequel changes things up, but keeps the edge and hilarity of the first. I mean where else are you going to hear treasured dialogue like, "Your knowledge of scientific biological transmogrification is only outmatched by your zest for kung-fu treachery!" That's just classic. Count me cautiously optimistic for this sequel. In the meantime check out Black Dynamite on Netflix Instant! Anyone else excited for it?
