Snipes to reprise his role in 'The Art of War II: The Betrayal'

June 5, 2008

Coming straight-to-DVD in August, Wesley Snipes reprises his role in 'The Art of War II: Betrayal' - the exhilarating high-action sequel to the $40MM worldwide box office hit Art of War - as Agent Neil Shaw who is called out of retirement as a Hollywood film consultant by the murder of his long-time martial arts mentor, 'Mother.' But Shaw soon finds himself in the midst of Washington intrigue as he uncovers a plot to assassinate several leading Senators and then finds himself set-up to take the wrap of a recent killing. With the help of 'Mother's' daughter Shaw goes deep undercover to save himself and to find out who is behind the plot, only to learn that there's more to this story than meets the eye.

Directed by Josef Rusnak, the film also stars Athena Karkanis, Lochlyn Munro, Ryan McDonald, and Winston Rekert.

The first film,'The Art of War' came out in 2000. The sequel is set to be released on DVD on August 12th through Sony Pictures.

Currently, Snipes has been granted bail pending an appeal of his conviction and sentencing last month to three years in prison for failing to file income tax returns for 1999 through 2001.
