Ever since I posted those “JCVD” clips, people have been asking me if this thing is for real. I’d like to say Yes, because if this was a gag reel, they sure spent a lot of money on it. So going on the assumption that this thing is a real movie, here’s one of the official trailers for it. Not the final trailer, according to the guy who sent it to me, but one of the trailers. I said it before and I’ll say it again: this will either be the greatest Jean-Claude Van Damme movie ever made, or it will be a train wreck. From everything I’ve seen, this thing looks funnier than the current state of Steven Seagal’s career. I.e. it’s a hoot.
Let’s see, from what I can gather from the trailer: JCVD plays JCVD, who is going through a custody battle, and needs money to pay his lawyer. So he goes to the bank, but they don’t have his money. Then someone takes the bank hostage, JCVD included, but the cops outside think JCVD’s the one doing the hostage taking. Or something like that. See for yourself.
According to reader Pierre, “JCVD” is scheduled to hit theaters in France June 4th, 2008.
