Jean-Claude Van Damme returns in WEAPON
13 May, 2009
Newly formed production company Flagship Films has jumped on board to produce the action film Weapon, which will feature Jean-Claude Van Damme and Vinnie Jones as world class assassins. Steven Seagal was originally set to star opposite Van Damme but he stepped out of the project and Jones replaced him. Director Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction, Highlander) is set to helm the project, which will be produced by Flagship's founders Alison Semenza and Todd Moyer.
Plot Concept: Van Damme and Jones as Derek Chase and Jack Conway, the world's most talented assassins. The story follows the two as they join forces to take down the head of a DEA-backed drug cartel.
Essential Entertainment has signed on to handle international sales on the film, which is on offer at Cannes beginning next week. ICM and the Gersh agency will jointly handle domestic sales.
