BEVERLY HILLS NINJA 2, a sequel to the 1997 action comedy film which starred the late Chris Farley, will shoot in South Korea starting next month.  It will be the first mainstream Hollywood movie to do so. 

The story will revolve around an orphaned boy who wants to be a ninja but becomes involved in a crime in Hollywood while looking for his real parents.

The crew will first shoot on the Jeju island before then moving to the Busan Film Studio. Motion Picture Corp. of America will produce the film. Kim Hyun-sung will also produce, while Han Jung-ho will executive produce.  Dennis Dugan (You Don't Mess with the Zohan) directs from a script by Mitch Klebanoff (Beverly Hills Ninja).

David Hasselhoff, Lucas Grabeel and Lin Chiling will star. 

Sony Pictures looks to release the film in May 2009  in U.S. and June in South Korea.

"The story will revolve around an orphaned boy who wants to be a ninja but becomes involved in a crime in Hollywood while looking for his real parents." <BR /><BR /><BR />So ummm wasn't that the plot of the 1st Beverly Hills Ninja? Also...do we actually need a sequel to this movie? I guess you can thank Kung Fu Panda for this sequel.

Thank you Kung fu panda. I think they don't need to sequel out the movie also to do this. Let Farley RIP. I guess somebody had the rights laying around and about to expire.
