Van Damme and Vinnie Jones: together at last!

They’re starring in Russell Mulcahy’s Weapon

There’s nothing like a prime clash of B-movie titans, which is what we’re hoping for now that Jean-Claude Van Damme and Vinnie Jones are starring in Weapon together.

Highlander – and, more recently, Give ‘Em Hell, Malone – helmer Russell Mulcahy seems like the perfect choice, for what could either be a clag-tastic cheese fest or a neat little thriller.

Van Damme and Jones will play Derek Chase and Jack Conway, the “world’s most talented assassins”. The two join forces when they attempt to take down a DEA-backed drug cartel.

It’s like the ’80s never ended, even if Vinnie isn’t quite on the same level as Arnie or Sly.

Can’t wait for the trailer…

      This sounds good, although I thought Van Damme rejected the Expendables because he wanted to focus on more arty pics arter JVCD. Strange as this sounds a lot like the Expendables to me. Either way, Van Damme is always enjoyable, I can take or leave Vinnie though, he's a bit bland.
