sudden death remake

Remember Sudden Death? It was a 1995 Die Hard knock-off set in an arena during a hockey game. Jean-Claude Van Damme played a firefighter who has to take on a group of terrorist – lead by Powers Boothe! – holding the entire arena hostage. Oh, and the Vice President is at the hockey game, too. It was pretty damn dumb and featured a scene where Van Damme stabbed a guy in the neck with a chicken bone. And now the movie is getting a remake! The Sudden Death remake is called Welcome to Sudden Death and will add a “comedic twist” to the proceedings.
