Jean-Claude Van Damme is on something of a roll lately. While we await the release of The Expendables 2, heralding Van Damme’s return to the big screen, the man has been hard at work on a couple of new action flicks. Six Bullets has been getting the most attention, which makes sense since it has DVD release date of of August 21st, 2012 from Sony.
But perhaps even more exciting is the prospect of Van Damme reteaming with his former Time Cop and Sudden Death director Peter Hyams for a new project.
That film is Enemies Closer and it’s slated for a release sometime in 2013. The movie is described as more of an action-thriller than a martial arts flick. IMDB lists the plot as thus:
Deep within a forest on the US-Canadian border, two sworn enemies must work together to escape a ruthless drug cartel hell-bent on retrieving a drug shipment which went missing there.
Tom Everett Scott and Orlando Jones co-star alongside Van Damme.
After Dark’s website lists Enemies Closer as being in pre-production. That said, the poster for the film premiered at Comic Con (also check out a fan-made poster). Stay tuned to Cityonfire.com for the latest updates as they’re made available. The prospect of Van Damme reuniting with his Time Cop director is exciting, to say the least.
