Action movie duos have seldom been as malleable and as fun to watch as Scott Adkins and Michael Jai White. From their first on-screen pairing in “Undisputed 2: Last Man Standing”, Scott and Mike have been enemies, allies, and everything in between in their subsequent team-ups on “Metal Hurlant Chronicles”, “Accident Man”, and “Triple Threat”.
Now, Scott and Mike are joining forces again, but this time, they’re keeping the world in suspense on what exactly it is they’re working on!

ICYMI, Michael Jai White first posted the tease of he and Scott working together again earlier this month on Twitter. You can see Mike’s tweet below, with he and Scott keeping viewers on their toes about their mystery project.
“Undisputed 5” At Last?
The return of The Most Complete Fighter in the World, Yuri Boyka, is something that martial arts fans have eagerly awaited ever since the end of 2017’s “Bokya: Undisputed”.
Both Scott and Mike tease the possibility of “Undisputed 5” being what they’re working on, though in a very tongue-in-cheek manner.
From Scott and Mike’s coyness in the video, the odds seem to be about 50-50 that “Undisputed 5” might finally be on the docket, and if so, the idea of Boyka and George “Iceman” Chambers meeting again would be a dream come true for “Undisputed” fans – a prospect no doubt sweetened by the idea of Isaac Florentine overseeing the next chapter of the “Undisputed” franchise again.
Scott has previously confirmed in a Q&A session for Hi-YAH! that a script for “Undisputed 5” has been written, though he avoids giving any details on it, and says it simply comes down to the money men involved giving it the greenlight.
When the world last saw Boyka, he had been returned to prison after sacrificing his freedom to ensure that of Alma (Teodora Duhovnikova), the widow of a fighter he accidentally killed in the ring.
Even back in prison, Boyka still returns to the ring for his next match, so he’s clearly got more fights to fight and plenty of energy for them. Hopefully, a rematch with Chambers is one of them in Boyka’s potential return in “Undisputed 5”…
Scott Adkins and Michael Jai White are an Amazing Duo!
Of course, even if their secret project is not “Undisputed 5”, Scott Adkins and Michael Jai White re-teaming is inevitably, a winning formula.
Individually and together, Scott and Mike have been at the center of a smorgasbord of astonishing action scenes in their respective careers.
Whatever they have in store undoubtedly belongs on any action fan’s Most Anticipated list of 2024 (ballparking the release window there).
All we can do is theorize what Scott Adkins and Michael Jai White are currently re-teaming for, but until it’s revealing as either “Undisputed 5”, “Accident Man 3” with a surprise revival of Mike Fallon’s friend-turned-enemy Mick, or something else entirely, it’ll be as fun a guessing game as any 2023 has to offer!
