JCVD is ‘The Bouncer’

Don’t know how I missed this news the other day but it appears Jean-Claude Van Damme has another project in the works; according to Variety the Muscles from Brussels will topline a $10 million action-packed thriller in the vein of “Taken” that will be directed by Julien Leclercq (“The Assault,””Braqueurs”).

Other Angle has boarded international sales and is shopping the high-concept project at AFM.

Van Damme will star as Lukas, a nightclub bouncer in his fifties who’s taken punches, literally and figuratively, and struggles to raise his 8-year-old daughter. One day, Lukas loses control during an altercation with a client and ends up in jail, while his daughter gets placed under the care of social services. But things take an unexpected turn when Interpol recruits Lukas to bring down a Dutch ringleader operating from Belgium in exchange for his daughter’s custody.

“The Bouncer” was penned by Jérémie Guez, an up-and-coming screenwriter/helmer who made his directorial debut with “A Bluebird in My Heart,” and collaborated on the script of “Yves Saint Laurent,” as well as co-wrote the upcoming “Burn Out” and “The Night Eats the World.”

The movie is being produced by Julien Madon (“Dalida”), Aimée Buidine and Guez, alongside shingles Labyrinthe, Atchafalaya Films and Cheyenne.

“The Bouncer” will start shooting in January.

 

Could this be the project that brings Van Damme back to the big screen? Fingers crossed…

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it’s a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
