Your Random Jean Claude Van Damme Movie Update

From time to time, I like to check in on the man who makes up the jaded viewer's rating system. Sure he turned down The Expendables but JCVD who last appeared in the aptly titled JCVD and Universal Soldier: Regeneration is still making Europe.

But after checking IMDB, its nice to see JCVD is making a new movie with Scott Adkins called Weapon (they actually fought one on one in The Shepherd: Border Patrol). Adkins is an action talent with serious awesome fight skills (think Van Damme circa Bloodsport).

So what's this about?

Rival assassins Jean Claude Van Damme & Scott Adkins — each of whom are masters of their respective weapons — form an uneasy alliance in their mission to take down a DEA-backed drug cartel.

Ahhhhhhhhh. Damn those DEA backed drug cartels! I wonder what JCVD's master weapon is. Ninja stars? Katana? Whip? AK47? Breadsticks?

Weapon is going to be a family affair as JCVD's daughter Bianca and his son Kristopher also star. A Facebook page for the movie has appeared as well some behind the scene photos. Sure I'm a little psyched but I'm not holding my breath. The Eagle Path STILL hasn't come out yet (this is the film he made when he turned down The Expendables...sigh)

I mean how hard is it to get distribution when he already has a built in audience? Could it be his fanbase has diminished? Are Van Damme fans watching MMA fights instead? Could it be that Insano Steve and I the only Van Damme fans left in the world?

Anybody else a Van Damme fan?


  1. Weapon sounds cool. Looking forward to the trailer and seeing him in The Expendables 2.

    Hay jadeviewer, what happened to movie and horror blips?

  2. I think Daily Radar just shut down. Poor Horror Blips...a solid communuty was growing on there.
