Universal Soldier 4 Casting Call; Filming begins May 9 in Baton
April 25, 2011
“Universal Soldier : Regeneration”, the second sequel to the smash-hit Jean-Claude Van Damme/Dolph Lundgren flick (which, for what it’s worth, was a fun ol’ flick – some great action sequences in it), and the first one to go straight to DVD, is, not unexpectedly – considering the regrettable moribund box-office appeal of its leads – the most fiscally-friendly and no-frills of the series. And yes, it looks it. Maybe even plays it. But unlike the last sequel, which severely lacked some Andrew Scott-baddism, producers have managed to coax Van Damme and Lundgren back to the fold. And, age aside, they both bring it like it was, er, 1992. To say they save the film is a huge understatement. They’re great!
Van Damme is probably only in half the film, and Lundgren might only be on screen for 15 minutes or so, but that’s enough to plant the film with a ‘worth a look’ sticker. The boys bring it – and then some, especially in the rough and tumble skirmish they participate in near the film’s end.
The film was directed by John Hyams, who did a terrific job… so much so that the studio has retained his services for another.
“Universal Soldier 4? will begin filming May 9 in Baton Rouge, Louisana. The flick will star series staples Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren as well as Michael Jai White. John Hyams wrote and directs. There’s a listing on Craig’s List for extras today, which also serves as a confirmation of filming dates and so on :
