Lionheart Remake On The Way?


There are a few Jean Claude Van Damme remakes on the way, including one for Kickboxer and TimeCop.  Another that is being talked about – Lionheart.  Albert Pyun, director of Cyborg, which also starred Jean Claude Van Damme, has recently revealed that it’s being discussed.

“I’ve been approached about directing a remake of Van Damme’s “Lionheart” with Van Damme by the rights holding distributor”, the filmmaker posted on Facebook. “Not sure if I will do this as it doesn’t seem to be a film needing a remake. I guess I’d changed the Los angeles setting to Hong Kong, but I am not sure it fits in with what I do. But I told the rights holder I will consider it depending on how excited JCVD is about it. And if I can make it with my vision of it.”

Pyun has also claimed tha a Napoleon biopic/epic is on the way.

“The Napoleon shoot has to be set for next April due to weather in Croatia or Bulgaria. I think the distrib wants this remake or, in my case, re-imagining, to shoot this year.”

I would say take all of this with a grain of salt, both projects.
