    I really like Michael Jai White, this could be awesome.
    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    I was curious when somebody would mention this future Oscar sweeping epic.

    So a couple months back Eddie Bravo was in town for a seminar at my gym and a couple of us hung out with him the night before at this nondescript little sports bar in Woodbury.

    So we're just hanging out and talking about everything from BJJ and MMA, to his current projects, to controlling the weather with lasers (don't ask) and someone asked Eddie about being out in Lousiana with Einstein (who I guess it turns out was an actor before really getting into jiu jitsu) filming some movie that, you guessed it, turns out to be Never Back Down 2. So being the kind of person I am, I said to him "So, tell me the truth, because I saw the first one on cable, this movie is going to suck, right?" To his credit, he said yes except for the fighting scenes. He gave them credit for trying to get legit people involved with the action scenes, but everything else was going to be about what you expected. We then talked about Randy Couture's "acting" in The Scorpion King 2 and other projects, and much hilarity ensued.

    So, in summation, Eddie was a cool guy, had funny stories, and freely admitted that this film is likely to be the greatest thing ever made, by anyone, anywhere.

    It can't be too hard to make a good MMA movie - there's a long history of great Hollywood boxing movies including "The Fighter" just a few months ago which was fucking awesome. You could just as easily make "Raging Bull" or "Rocky" as an MMA movie by just substituting the ring scenes with octagon scenes. Apparently MMA is just not "cool" enough in Hollywood yet for someone to write a really good script and get it produced.

    That would be great. You almost just string together the first 3, with a soundtrack and it would play like it.

    See? This is why this **** needs to be directed by an evil monkey.

    Never Back Down 3: Monkey Edition

    Disney Pictures in association with PIXAR and Vodka Bottle

    Washed up UFC fighter Steven Segal and his pet panda coach a lovable team of misfits:
    -a TAPOUT wearing douchebag (played by Alec Baldwin) who has crotch shrinkage issues and takes it out on his self depricating girlfriend who has major daddy issues and is hooked on crack,
    -Stemmy (played by Woody Allen) a young high school student who is bullied by his peers and shunned by the love of his life Laquiffa to whom he has to totally prove that he is a real man in a climactic battle,
    -Lamar, (played by Chris Rock or David Allen Grier, still undecided) who plays the token black guy who naturally has to be wise-cracking basketball player and ladies man who has to prove to himself that life is about more than banging white chicks, and who most likely does Capoeira.

    Together, they will learn the value of friendship, endurance, overcoming bullies, coming through where it counts, and that pandas don't like to be held.


    This summer, Steven Segal, Alec Baldwin, Woody Allen, Chris Rock/Davil Allen Grier, and Ling Ling the Panda star in: Never Back Down 3: We're Running Out Of Franchise Material

    The problem with boxing scripts is that lots of things that are unsavory about boxing and boxers are built into the scripts but boxing is just accepted for what it is. You put stuff like head injury, corruption, or people who have families struggling with drugs in and you are setting up mma to be seen in some of the same negative veins. Because of the stigma on MMA right now it needs to be put in as positive a light as possible.

    You're missing the badass who bullies others because of his secret shame of his illiteracy/family problems/sensitive side/horrible studder/inability to ice skate. He wears a leather jacket and has a red bandana tied around his boot or something.

    A mockumentary about the first 3 or 4 UFC would be great! So many fat mullets.
