Production has wrapped on a Jean-Claude Van Damme action flick titled Pound of Flesh. The film re-teams Van Damme with Ernie Barbarash (Favela), the director behind 2011′s Assassination Games and 2012′s 6 Bullets. Van Damme’s son, Kristopher Van Varenberg (Enemies Closer), and Darren Shahlavi (Ip Man 2) are co-starring. Pound of Flesh is being produced by Kirk Shaw (Driven To Kill, Hardwired).

The plot line of Pound of Flesh is reminiscent of Park Chan-wook’s 2002 thriller, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance:

In China to donate his kidney to his dying niece, Deacon (Van Damme), an former black-ops agent, awakes the day before the operation to find he is the latest victim of organ theft. Stitched up and pissed-off, Deacon descends from his opulent hotel in search of his stolen kidney and carves a blood-soaked path through the darkest corners of the city – brothels, fight clubs, back-alley black markets, and elite billionaire estates. The clock is ticking for his niece and with each step he loses blood.

Pound of Flesh will be getting a North American release date on May 20, 2015.

Updates: Via the Hollywood Reporter, Pound of Flesh will feature fight scenes coordinated by veteran choreographer and stuntman John Salvetti (Donnie Yen’s Flash Point, Special Identity). | John Ralston (Degrassi The Next Generation), William B Davis (The X-Files) and Charlotte Peters have joined Pound of Flesh.

    I gotta admit this could go either way. Van Damme is very frustrating for every balls to the wall flick (Universal Soldier 3 and 4, JCVD and (to a certain extent) Expendables 2) he makes ill-advised moves that show him in a different light. Now I liked Until Death…and Assassination Games was alright… but Alien Uprising, Enemies Closer and Dragon Eyes were atrocious. So, i’m looking forward to such with reservation.

    isn’t that Impact’s Mike Leeder as the thug being choked out?

    It’s not exactly difficult to cut a kick-ass trailer, even for a subpar movie, but I sure am hoping “Pound of Flesh” lives up the pre-release hype.

    • I agree. It’ll be nice to see an “action-packed” JCVD flick, but then again, you can easily make a movie seem like it has a lot of hand-to-hand action (i.e. Assassination Games). Regardless, it’ll be nice seeing Van Damme go back to his roots and not play a mentor, bad guy or co-star.

    This is an outstanding show case of talent in every sense , JCVD’S on screen presence , ERNIE BARBARASH , (director) and JOHN (Super Scraps) SALVITTI (Fight Choreographer/Stuntman) this movie is sure be BANGING from start to finish!!!
