Finally on par for release following a successful Kickstarter campaign last year and several promotional appearances since then is director Michael Baumgarten’s new anti-bullying action drama, The Martial Arts Kid from Traditionz Entertainment. The film’s release will be aimed at establishing Traditionz as a staple of martial arts film production and distribution, here and now piloting with a cast and crew brimming with well-known names like Don “The Dragon” Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock, and T.J. Storm with actor Jansen Panetierre in the title role opposite Matthew Ziff.
Produced by martial artists, producer James Wilson and company president and veteran Hollywood stuntwoman Cheryl Wheeler with a script by Adam Marsh, Panettiere leads the cast in the coming-story of a Robbie who moves in with his aunt and uncle in Florida following the death of his mother. Facing adversity in his new surroundings, his sibs begin to focus on teaching Robbie martial arts in an effort to channel his rage and anger, and essentially help put him on a path toward making better choices in life.
Traditionz Entertainment will finally release the film in select theaters starting on September 18 in New York and Los Angeles with further releases pending following its premiere on September 12 at the Burbank International Film Festival.
