Action News: Finally… Van Damme vs. Van Damme!
It is hard to believe it has been two years since the news was going around the action movie community about Jean-Claude Van Damme and his son Kris Van Damme starring in a movie entitled The Tower. Now Jean-Claude Van Damme has worked with his son Kris and his daughter Bianca Bree in several movies so the fact that he would be working with Kris again was not earth shattering news. The real newsworthy thing about The Tower is the rumor that we would see a father vs. son fight in the movie’s climax.
Soon after news of The Tower broke, Jean-Claude Van Damme began working on the Kickboxer reboots and the pilot for his Amazon Prime series, Jean-Claude Van Johnson and it seemed like The Tower and the dream match of JCVD vs. KVD was put on the shelf.
But the good news in all of this, while The Tower may not be happening anytime soon (if ever), we WILL be getting Van Damme vs. Van Damme in the upcoming film Kill ‘Em All.
Need proof? Check out this post made earlier today by Kris Van Damme on his Facebook page…
Kill ‘Em All is currently in production and is slated for a 2017 release. The action thriller not only stars Jean-Claude Van Damme and his son Kris Van Damme, but action movie veterans Daniel Bernhardt (Bloodsport II) and Peter Stormare (Commander Hamilton) as well.
The movie will be directed by Peter Malota. Malota has been a stunt coordinator for years, working with Jean-Claude Van Damme in Double Impact and Universal Soldier, and will be making his directorial debut with Kill ‘Em All.
We will share more news on Kill ‘Em All as it becomes available.
