A First Look at 'Johnny Thunder 2'
While the filming for Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile continues in Egypt, the studio decided to share some movie stills and information in an exclusive first look at the movie.
New Characters: Along with the return of Johnny Thunder, Lord Sinister, Pippin, Dr. Kilroy, the beloved Patrick, and more, new characters will be introduced. Along the way, the characters meet Vladnichuk; a Russian arms dealer that Lord Sinister and his gang buy weapons from, Jerry Digalot; the cousin of James Digalot, Sarah Thunder; the Daughter of Johnny and Pippin (she wasn't in the first movie because she was in school), Hiram Aziz; an Egyptologist, and Slyboots; the villainous leader of the Egyptian Black Market.
A different type of beginning: Unlike the beginning for Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo, which featured a mysterious murder, the beginning for Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile will tell the story of Pharaoh Ramses III and the treasure Johnny looks for.
Advanced Technology: Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile will feature new uses of technology, including the capability of turning two extras into two massive armies!
Other Details: The film will also feature many scenes of awe and action, including a street chase in Cairo, a battle on board a cruise ship, soaring scenes of a zeppelin flying through the sky, and a surprise plot twist near the end that will have the whole audience reeling with shock.
During the holidays, a local TV station will feature a film preview in their 2009 annual Christmas special. The first official trailer will debut February 2010 and the film will be released July 2010.
