Steven Seagal Leaves Jean Claude Van Damme's "Weapon"

Posted: May 13th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Steven Seagal Leaves Jean Claude Van DammeSubmit Comment
One month ago, we reported that Jean Claude Van Damme signed on to star in "Weapon," opposite Steven Seagal. This came as a surprise to fans, since Van Damme turned down the opportunity to star in Sylvester Stallone's "The Expendables."

Now, THR is reporting that Seagal is no longer part of the film, having been replaced by Vinnie Jones (X-Men 3). Whether the filmmakers believed that Jones is a better fit or whether Seagal wanted no part of this likely direct-to-DVD release is unknown.

In the movie, Jones will play a master sharpshooter while Van Damme's character is skilled with a knife. The two join forces to take down the head of a drug cartel, backed by the DEA.

"Weapon" is directed by Russell Mulcahy (Highlander, Resident Evil: Extinction) and is set to begin filming in August.

I could place one of Seagal's wonderful movies on the floor and then poop right next to it, turn back and not even tell the difference between the two....UNLESS I ate too much corn.

Vinnie Jones was excellent in lock stock 2 smokin' barrels, and snatch so I would think he's a much better choice.

Plus he can run and do his own stunts without weezing asthma problems that send out the stand ins...Mulchahy's directing- direct to DVD or not it'll be entertaining and above par for the medium.

Actually... time goes by so quickly, we forget how old these guys are. I mean... it's almost 20 years already VanDumb and SeaGull were at their peak. f*ck... they're up for a Cocoon sequel soon enough!

How sh*tty does it have to be for Seagal to back out? Nice career move JCVD, turn down Expendables for a movie even Seagal won't touch.
