VAN DAMME TO RESURRECT BLOOD SPORT
2 Febrary, 2009
Hollywood hard-man JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME is to reprise his role in cult martial arts movie
BLOOD SPORT over twenty years after its original release. The 48-year-old actor confirmed he is working on Bloodsport 2, a follow-up to the 1988 hit which launched him to stardom.
The original film, in which VAN DAMME's Frank Dux won a deadly fighting tournament, spawned two straight-to-video sequels yet Van Damme was attached to neither.
And the Timecop star wants to make the new movie a deeper affair.
He tells Total Film, "You know, like, we’re gonna do Blood sport 2, which was my first movie. And I want to do it now in a very mature way, where the guy from Bloodsport is a complete bum, maybe abusing his son."
