Hey folks, Harry here... Seems Jean-Claude has decided to travel his own road, not hitching his gypsy film career to that of Sylvester Stallone's. I'm of two minds on this. I'd love to see Van Damme and the rest of the Eighties badasses all in a singular bit of badassery... but at the same time, after JCVD kicked my ever-loving ass... I give Van Damme the rope to do whatever the fuck he wants... and if the Muscles from Brussels wants more BLOODSPORT... who the fuck are we to deny him more BLOODSPORT? Right? Right!
He may have passed on Stallone's new movie, but.... Van Damme's said yes to Bloodsport 2. Jean-Claude Van Damme has confirmed to totalfilm.com that he is working on Bloodsport 2, a true sequel to his first hit movie. “You know, like, we’re gonna do Bloodsport 2," he told us in a recent interview. "Which was my first movie. And I want to do it now in a very mature way, where the guy from Bloodsport is a complete bum, maybe abusing his son." The original Bloodsport spawned three follow-ups, but Jean-Claude was connected to none of them. Despite the recent success of latest movie JCVD, Van Damme is encountering some resistance from the studio. “They told me, ‘No, no, no! You cannot make a movie in America where a father is abusing his son physically! It’s wrong." “And you cannot be a guy on drugs doing karate and shit like that.’ I said, ’Why? Why? Tell me why.’ "It’s against the rules of success. But I believe the other rules of success. To show something real.” Click To Read It All At Total Film
