Yesterday we brought you the American trailer for Jean-Claude Van Damme‘s JCVD. Damme wrote, directed and is starring in his latest project Full Love, along with his two children Kristopher and Bianca Van Varenberg. The movie is filming in Thailand with a $5 million budget. From what I understand, Van Damme is supposedly working for next to nothing or scale, compared to his normal multi-million dollar asking price. Twitch Film have gotten their hands on the first photos
Cinema Blend describes the script as “a heavy drama with romantic elements, in the vein of True Romance, without the clever dialogue.” The story follows Frenchy, a man who tries to free a Turkish whore with whom he is in love with, from her pimp. His best friend, “a bitter, crippled, alcoholic veteran of the Iraq war” ends up pissed at Frenchy for falling in love with someone from ‘over there’. Van Damme himself describes the film the project as “based on a true story, based in another reality” and “about love, friendship, and dedication.”
I’m not so sure about the film’s plot, but one thing is for sure, Van Damme is doing one hell of a job in an attempt to reinvent himself and revive his career.
