UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A no-nonsense undercover agent meets his match when he poses as a teacher at a progressive elementary school in Kindergarten Cop 2, an all-new movie coming exclusively to home entertainment in 2016 from Universal 1440 Entertainment. A fish-out-of-water tale with laughs for the entire family, the film stars Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables 3, Workaholics) and Bill Bellamy (White Collar, Royal Pains). Kindergarten Cop 2 started filming in Vancouver on July 27.
"Kindergarten Cop grossed over $200 million worldwide and has been entertaining audiences of all ages," said Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. "In this exciting reboot, we introduce a unique blend of humor and action to the next generation of viewers, as well as share a reimagined version of the story with longtime fans who have made this an enduring family favorite."
Kindergarten Cop 2 stars Dolph Lundgren and Bill Bellamy along with an adorable batch of young actors. The film is directed by Don Michael Paul (Jarhead 2: Field of Fire, Tremors 5: Bloodlines), from a script by David H. Steinberg (American Pie 2, Miss Dial) and produced by Mike Elliott (The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power, Death Race 3: Inferno).
Assigned to recover sensitive stolen data, a gruff FBI agent (Dolph Lundgren) goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher, but the school's liberal, politically correct environment is more than he bargained for.
