Djokovic to Star in EX2

Novonite has reported today that world No.1 tennis player Novak Djokovic has arrived in Bulgaria to take part in the shooting of EX2. Djokovic has a minor role in the sequel and will stay in Bulgaria for a very short time.

The Bulgarian news agency further reports that the shooting of EX2 in Bulgaria will continue until Friday. Afterwards, the movie will be finished in China, where Jet Li will join the cast.

I personally don't welcome the idea and don't understand the rationality behind it. The only commonality between EX2 and Djokovic is Eastern Europe. I can't see him attract a bigger audience to drive more revenue for the movie if that is the motivation behind the casting decision.
