Get your organs ready for Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Pound of Flesh! This upcoming action-thriller re-teams the martial arts star 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), Darren Shahlavi (Ip Man 2), John Ralston (Degrassi The Next Generation), William B Davis (The X-Files) and Charlotte Peters are co-starring.

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 theatrical/VOD release date on May 15, 2015, followed by its Blu-ray & DVD release on June 23, 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). | Ernie Barbarash, the director of Pound of Flesh, spills some details about his upcoming film in this video.

    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.
