After the huge success, Bas Boon and Frederico Lapenda are in the process of developing Fight Game, the biggest martial arts movie ever starring famous fighters. The movie will feature K-1 world champion Semmy Schilt and Chalid Arrab (Germany). Arrab signed up for the Bad Guys sequel and Schilt currently plays a part in the movie Transporter 3 with Jason Statham.

In 1984 Bas Boon (1967) began his successful store named Nikko Toshogu Sports. He also started promoting professional Thai Fighting and Kick Boxing events and became one of the worlds most famous and youngest (age 17) fight promoters, managing three times Golden Glory (http://www.goldenglory.com/) world champion K-1 Semmy Schilt. He started producing martial arts events for television. With Frederico Lapenda he started producing movies.

It took them three years to launch the film Bad Guys (http://www.badguysthemovie.com/), a crime pulp fiction drama in the style of Snatch and Reservoir Dogs, in which a drug dealing female lawyer uses her ex clients to acquire a new type of drug that will make her millions of dollars. Kate del Castillo, who plays the leading role, also played the leading role in the film Under the Same Moon, which broke all records for a Spanish movie in America. Another star to play a role in the movie Bad Guys is UFC Champion Quinton Jackson.

"It would be logical for us to produce a fight movie, but Bad Guys turned out to be something else. Since we won the awards we have received numerous offers to produce new movies," Boon says. "We are determined to produce quality entertainment as we enjoy the process of film making."

Currently Lapenda and Boon are developing a 24 hour fighting channel, Combat Channel, http://www.combatchannel.net/.
