“Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance” is the long-awaited sequel to the cult classic “Samurai Cop”. Stars Matt Hannon (Joe Marshall) and Mark Frazer (Frank Washington) return, alongside Melissa Moore (Peggy), Cranston Komuro (Fooj Fujiyama) and Gerald Okamura (Okamura) from the first film. Produced in 1991, the original “Samurai Cop”, directed by Amir Shervan, continues to find a new generation of captive and rabid audiences through its recent revival on the midnight theatrical circuit and in film festivals. The sequel “Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance” is set 25 years later, and Detective Frank Washington is forced to team up with his long estranged partner Joe Marshall to solve a series of assassinations. In addition to taking on their resurrected nemesis Fuj Fujiyama (Cranston Komuro), the duo must face a new generation of villains, including Dogge Sakamoto (Bai Ling) and the enigmatic Linton Kitano (Tommy Wiseau).
Tommy Wiseau and Dawna Lee Heising acted in a scene that was filmed in 35mm film. Film is very rare these days – Quentin Tarantino is shooting HATEFUL EIGHT on 70mm film and the new James Bond film is in 35mm film – so it’s awesome that Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance will include scenes shot in 35mm film!
The film also stars Kayden Kross, Cranston Komuro, Mel Novak, Laurene Landon, Nicole D’Angelo, Mindy Robinson, Nicole Bailey, Lexi Belle, Shane Ryan, Joe Estevez, Kristine DeBell, Lisa London, and Joselito Rescober.
