UPDATED: Here’s a new trailer for this. It’s in French, but this could be the best JCVD movie in years…
Jean Claude Van Damme has a new movie out this summer titled The Bouncer (or Lukas for France). A new poster is below.
Let me be the first on here to say… this looks like it could be an impressive film. It doesn’t look cheap and looks like it plays to Van Damme’s strengths and acting style/mood.
Van Damme will star as Lukas, a nightclub bouncer in his fifties who’s taken punches, literally and figuratively, and struggles to raise his 8-year-old daughter. One day, Lukas loses control during an altercation with a client and ends up in jail, while his daughter gets placed under the care of social services. But things take an unexpected turn when Interpol recruits Lukas to bring down a Dutch ringleader operating from Belgium in exchange for his daughter’s custody.
The movie had a budget of 10 million dollars. The movie is released in France next month on the 22nd.
