Jab! Jab! The Japanese Trailer For Real Steel Is Looking Good Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Jean Claude Van Damme Returns To The Screen In SIX BULLETS!
Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
We saw a little bit of JCVD this year when Van Damme voiced a character in KUNG FU PANDA 2, but now he's returning to live-action filmmaking with SIX BULLETS, according to Variety.
In SIX BULLETS, Van Damme will play a mercenary hired to help track down and rescue a martial arts fighter's missing daughter. The film is budgeted at $10 million, and will begin shooting in August under director Ernie Barbarash (ASSASSINATION GAMES).
No word on whether this will receive theatrical release in the States, but I hope so - I really liked JCVD and although he may be getting long in years, Van Damme still tries to make entertaining films. At times, he can even be fairly brilliant:
Rob Cohen to Direct BULLET RUN
Bullet Run centers] on the head of an elite private protection team and his ex-CIA agent wife attempting to avenge their daughter’s murder by infiltrating Iran to bring the killer to justice. When the operation to extract their target goes awry, they must battle through 200 miles and 20,000 bullets while keeping alive the one man they want to kill.
As a massive fan of the tv show, this franchise has cheesed me the **** out from the beginning due to Jim Phelps betrayal(movie version-John Voight not tv version-Peter Graves). But, Brad Bird getting a live action movie gig, and Pegg/Rhames/Holloway/Renner/etc as the MI team, well...I gotta give it a look at least.
Thomas Jane on HEADSHOT, THE LYCAN, His Glen Sherley Biopic, His Future in Hollywood, More
Heh heh...Thomas Jane officially goes even higher on the 'cool' list.On Headshot:
JANE: Well, Wayne Kramer brought me into the project and when Wayne left the project I suggested Walter Hill to Stallone and the next week they hired Walter Hill and I was very happy about that because I’ve always wanted to work with him.
But then did the studio sort of…
JANE: Well, Joel Silver came onboard the project and said that he has a quote-unquote ‘formula’ for these quote-unquote ‘buddy movies’ and it has to be a white guy and a quote-unquote ‘ethnic guy.’ And they relieved me of duty and basically paid me off, which I was really upset about, you know? I didn’t get a call from Stallone. I was a little upset about that. Maybe they didn’t want anybody on the movie with a bigger dick than him.
Wayne Kramer was sort of abruptly fired from that film too. Was it over him being too violent? Because I’ve been told that it’s still an R-rated movie and Stallone’s comment was that [Kramer had] made a [script] that was too violent and that they were doing something that was a little less extreme.
JANE: Well, Wayne Kramer is very dark, very extreme, which I personally like. But I know that Stallone is a bit more of a traditionalist. That doesn’t make it worse it just makes it different. Walter Hill for my money was the man to fulfill both. He can do great with character and he’s great with action. So he is the man…I hope they can still make a great film without me.
Is there any chance they could find another role in the film for you?
JANE: I doubt it. I’m kinda like the spurned lover…let ‘em go shoot themselves.
In the head?
JANE: No, I mean…shoot the film themselves. (laughter).
