Jean Claude Van Damme

Either JCVD really helped get Van Damme back in the biz, or he's desperate to make some money. The horror gurus at Arrow in the Head are reporting that Jean Claude Van Damme is joining a horror project called The Breed. AITH caught up with JCVD in Cannes, where he revealed that after shooting a movie called Weapon in the summer, he'd shoot The Breed next. "It's a great story, great script with true emotion. I want to show the fans I am transferable. I wanted to make a horror movie a few years back, but the script was weak and had no direction." Apparently this script was a lot better, as JCVD obviously took the job.

This is the first time we've ever heard of this project, so we don't know much about it. A quick search for The Breed yields two results on IMDb: a 2001 horror film about a breed of vampires, and a Wes Craven Presents film about some kids on a "deserted" island from 2006. All that JCVD said about it is that "it's set in a village where strange things happen," but he wouldn't say anymore, "you know, let the movie speak for itself!" We're not sure what this, but as long as JCVD is kicking some ass in it, I'll be happy. Anyone have any idea what this could be about or know more about it? I'm curious to know why JCVD was so interested.

    JC really seems to want to press home the point that he cares about the quality of the scripts he takes on these days! Personally I'd like to think that this 'village' is home to a load of JCVD clones. One of them is found murdered, and for the rest of the film all the other JCVDs have to figure out who of them is the killer by way of a kickboxing contest.

    I greatly respect his care for the quality of scripts nowadays. But why oh why did he have to turn down The Expendables. His fans (me) are fans because he kicks ass and looks good doin it, not because he necessarily is the best actor, altough he is a bit underrated in that department. So I guess the point is: JCVD please pull out some crazy 360 kicks for your fans, what better way to show 'emotion'.

    Cant help but think of that kickboxing "I kick arse for the Lord!" priest in Braindead.... could be something there for JCVD....maybe

    NOICE! I'm upset he wasn't in Street Fighter though, that would've made it watchable

    This is really interesting that he finds a horror project more interesting than the Stallone actioner, "The Expendables". It would be great to see Van Damme kick some supernatural ass in this flick. At least he's getting good all around publicity! Good for JCVD! I sure do hope one or all his upcoming flicks get a theatrical release!

    My friend who puts actors in homes here in New Orleans said he has to deal with Van Damme soon. SO looks likely he is in the film again. Ill enquire further to make sure its for the EXpendables!

    I disagree Van Damme has a lot of assome movies from 2000 till now. Movies like universal soldier the return,the order,replicant,in hell,wake of death,the hard corps,untill death and the shepherd. and he has a alot more great movies to come. and the breed sounds like its going to be a wicked movie as long as its nothing like steval segals try at horror movies
