According a mistake by The Manila Times, The Monk appeared to have the same plot as Van Damme's latest project, "Hell".
Of course, these two films are totally different and as we know the title of "Hell" has been changed to "The SHU".
Here is the Manila Times report on Hell/The SHU:
Featuring lots of brawls and martial combat sequences, Hell is about a man who was sent to jail for killing the man who raped and murdered his wife. To gain freedom, he must survive the "Shu," a competition in which hardened criminals battle to their death for the entertainment of the warden and his wealthy clients.
In Hell, Van Damme will return to his fan's favorite role for him, but this time with more savage opponents.
