Van Damme And Vinnie Together At Last
Playing assassins in Weapons

13 May 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

Are you a fan of people getting punched in the face? If so, you're in for a treat, with the news that Jean-Claude Van Damme, the Muscles from Brussels, and Vinnie Jones, the Wideboy from Watford, are teaming up on Weapons.

The film stars the pair as Derek Chase and Jack Conway, the world's two most gifted assassins. The pair have to join forces to take down the nefarious head of a DEA-backed drug cartel. We're guessing that, despite disliking each other to begin with they come to a grudging level of mutual respect.

The film's the first release for the new Flagship Films and is set to be directed by Highlander's Russell Mulcahy who's recently been working on Give Em Hell, Malone (see the trailer for that here).

RE: Van Damme And Vinnie Together At Last
So, Van Damme turned down a part in "The Expendables" to do this? Erm, he's not exactly the sharpest tool in the box. In fact he's just a tool. More
