Adkins? Van Damme? Lundgren? Universal Soldier 4? What?!

If that headline doesn’t get your blood pumping, then I suppose you should stop reading this article right now. Since I’m not an avid Twitter user — I have an account, but one glance will tell you how many times I’ve used it recently — I have to rely on the keen observations of others when someone makes an announcement via this strange and unusual social networking site. Apparently action guru Scott Adkins posted something intriguing as of late regarding the status of “Universal Soldier 4″, and I gotta admit, it’s pretty damned cool. Assuming, of course, you’re a fan of Scott Adkins.

Prepare yourselves:

Getting on a plane to go and make Universal Soldier 4 with Dolph & JC.

Two words: Hell. Yes. Although a handful of people tend to strongly disagree with me on the subject, I happen to think that “Universal Soldier: Regeneration” is a pretty badass movie. It’s a little goofy, yes, but director John Hyams delivers a competently-crafted genre flick that didn’t shy away from an copious amounts of outrageous action. The idea of another installment, especially one that involves Scott Adkins, should excite just about anyone who gets a kick out this decidedly underrated series. Bring it on, I say.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    Oh, don´t forget about Michael Jay White, according to the rumors he is involved as well! Damn, that cast puts “the Expendables” to shame!

      Cool! So they aren’t saying that “US: The Return” Didn’t happen. maybe we’ll get the person that the SETH AI based his body on or something to that extent. SWEET! JCVD, Dolph, Adkins, and White! SCORE!

      Yeah, a cast that — with the exception of Lundgren — hasn’t been in a film that nobody who’s anybody has ever seen in 15 years. Dream on.

    I was a fan of the original but that’s as far as I went. I guess I’ll have to rent the others.

    Universal Soldier Regeneration was awesome especially the fight scenes.

    Universal Soldier is going to be awesome with Van Damme, Lundgren and Scott Adkins.
