When it was announced that we were getting a long-awaited Kindergarten Cop sequel, fans were excited to see what an older Arnold Schwarzenegger would be up to this time and how the story would change this time around. However, these fans were then disappointed to learn that Arnie would not actually be returning for Kindergarten Cop 2.
In place of Arnold Schwarzenegger comes another big, veteran movie star, in the shape of Dolph Lundgren, who has actually become good friends with Arnie over the years. Dolph has now opened up about working on Kindergarten Cop 2, admitting that he was worried about taking the role, due to his friendship with Schwarzenegger.
Lundgren explained, "When I first heard about it I thought I don't know if wanna do this, because I'm friends with him and you don't wanna do another one of his movies, but the script was great and fun. He actually liked the picture."
While Dolph Lundgren is used to working alongside other experienced actors and actresses, it seems that there was actually some getting used to working on a movie with a bunch of six-year-old kids. Dolph says that the children were obviously a little intimidated by his presence to start with, although they soon relaxed and became much more comfortable around him.
Lundgren added, "They were a little scared in the beginning because I'm a big guy with a fake gun... but then after about a week they warmed up (to me) and realised I was just there to goof off and have a good time and drink coffee."
Kindergarten Cop 2 sees Dolph Lundgren starring alongside comedian Bill Bellamy, with the movie being released on DVD in the US on May 17, before then being available on DVD in the UK on May 23.
