Jean-Claude Van Damme Returns to Theatrical Films with "Dragon Eyes"

Posted: November 14th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jean-Claude Van Damme Returns to Theatrical Films with "Dragon Eyes"Submit Comment
After "JCVD" hit theaters, Jean-Claude Van Damme was supposed to turn his career around. But then he refused to appear in "The Expendables" and went back to starring in straight-to-DVD films.

Now comes word that the actor has teamed with mega-producer Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes, The Matrix, Die Hard) for "Dragon Eyes," which will also star fighter/actor Cung Lee.

Plot: In New Orleans, a mysterious man looks to unite to warring gangs against the lawmen who have been using them to advance their corrupt agenda. Lee will play the lead. Van Damme will play a supporting role.

In addition to "Dragon Eyes," Van Damme is also voicing a character in "Kung Fu Panda 2" and may end up playing a villain in "The Expendables" sequel.

Regarding Van Damme and Silver... The two men previously worked on "Predator," when Silver hired and then fired the actor, who at the time was a stunt man set to play the Predator.

I respect JCVD but his glory days are long gone.

If anyone out there has the video or some stills of Van Damme in that pink crab-monster suit from "Predator", could you please post a link. I searched for it a while ago to settle a bet with a friend and couldn't find it anywhere.

Turns down a PERSONAL offer from Sly for: 'The Expendables!'

Accepts doing a voice in: Kung-Fu Panda 2.

Joel must be spending money on this from his 'Slush'(ie) fund. But then again, it IS Joel Silver.

If Jean Clod is in this, you shouldn't name it Dragon Eyes ... you should name it Draggin' Ass.

So since Jean Clod Van DoucheBag is a supporting actor on this movie, expect another hiring and firing.

The fact that Uwe Boll hasn't hired this guy yet shows that even Uwe has standards ...
or that he only has a phone book for Hollywood.

this is some shocking sh*t well van douche expect for Dragon eyes to be a flop like ur last theatrical release Universal Soldier the return with Michael Jai WHite and Goldberg.U started to fade away quick when Jet li made his American Debut in Lethal Weapon 4 and Romeo must die

Ur gonna f*ck it up again and ur way past ur prime,and for turning down sly u will be sh*tted on.

Joel Silver shame on you or u must be desperate enough to produce for Z movie actors if u wanted an action movie with better fighters at least put Scott Adkins and Darren Shahlavi

The reason he turned down The Expendables was because the part wasn't deep enough. But the Kung Fu panda voice over is? *rolls eyes*

Yeah... he didn't want to lose to Jet Li.

I'd be looking at my co-stars and the pay check. I wouldn't give a rat's ass as to the fight's victor.
