Watch: Insane Jean-Claude Van Damme in 'Enemies Closer' Trailer
November 27, 2013
There's been a lot of buzz surrounding Jean-Claude Van Damme lately from his viral splits stunt (parodied by Channing Tatum on the set of 22 Jump Street) to the trailer for his first comedy Welcome to the Jungle. Now we have a trailer for the action film Enemies Closer, but this film also has some hilarity sprinkled throughout, if only because Van Damme truly looks like a mad man in this story about a former Navy SEAL named Henry sent to retrieve a lost drug cartel package. But he also has to contend with Clay, a man with a personal vendetta, who is played by Orlando Jones for some reason. Honestly, this looks terrible, but at least Van Damme is keeping himself busy and seemingly having a good time. Watch below!
Enemies Closer is directed by Peter Hyams (A Sound of Thunder, The Musketeer) and written by unknown writers James & Eric Bromberg. Forest ranger and former Navy SEAL Henry (Jean-Clause Van Damme) is plunged into survival mode when a drug cartel forces him to help retrieve a downed package. Trapped in the wilderness, Henry finds himself face to face with Clay (Orlando Jones), a man with a personal vendetta against Henry who has returned for retribution. Now, the two mortal enemies must make a choice: put aside their past and work together, or die alone at the hands of the drug runners. Tom Everett Scott also stars in the film which Lionsgate will send to limited theaters and VOD early next year on January 24th, 2014.
