It only makes sense in the wacky world that we live in that comedic actor Kevin James would star in a martial arts film, it was bound to happen. No, it's not Beverly Hills Ninja 2, but of course it's a comedy that will take James into the octagon.
James is set to play a physics teacher whose school faces drastic cutbacks. In an attempt to save his best friend's job and the music program his students love, he moonlights in the octagon as a mixed martial arts fighter, ultimately leading to brawling in the UFC.
The movie is being developed over at Sony Pictures, and it's been put on the fast track at the studio. They hope to start shooting next year.
This should be interesting...
What do you all think about James fighting in the MMA?
