Production is underway on the KICKBOXER remake, and Radar Films has announced HAYWIRE star and mixed martial artist Gina Carano has been cast in the film.

Jean-Claude Van Damme joins the Kickboxer remake replacing Tony Jaa

When KICKBOXER was announced as getting the remake treatment earlier this year, I wondered why bother? The Jean-Claude Van Damme film ranks as one of the actor's earliest hits but was sullied by a half dozen mediocre to awful sequels. Still, when GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY's Dave Bautista joined as Tong Po, I was somewhat intrigued. Even the addition of MMA fighter Georges St Pierre and...

Cast revealed for kickboxer reboot; now includes Scott Adkins and Tony Jaa

The upcoming 3D KICKBOXER reboot has added two more cast members to round out the martial arts flick. Scott Adkins ( ZERO DARK THIRTY ) and Tony Jaa ( ONG BAK ) will join the previously announced Dave Bautista ( GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ), former UFC welterweight champion George St. Pierre ( CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER ) and Alain Moussi ( X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST )....

Dave Bautista and UFC champion Georges St. Pierre join the Kickboxer reboot

I am an unabashed fan of Jean-Claude Van Damme . For a period in the early 90s, I would see every one of JCVD's films theatrically while my dad tried to cover my eyes during the simulated sex scenes. He failed and i am the bewb-obsessed cinephile that writes for you daily here at JoBlo.com. Needless to say, I feel a little bit of my movie soul weep each time a remake of a Van Damme...

Journey 2 writers Mark and Brian Gunn to script Timecop reboot

The last time I wrote anything on the TIMECOP reboot was the announcement that they were actually doing it last year. Then I did a Cast This for the character of Max Walker originally played by the legendary Jean-Claude Van Damme . The schmoes top three choices included: Scott Adkins , Jason Statham , and Karl Urban . Any of those sound like good picks to you?...

Jean-Claude Van Damme has an idea on how he can return for The Expendables 4

When we last saw Jean-Claude Van Damme 's Jean Vilain at the end of THE EXPENDABLES 2, he was in no shape to return for the upcoming THE EXPENDABLES 3. However, Van Damme has an idea on how he can come back for THE EXPENDABLES 4, if it gets made. The actor commented about him possibly returning to Expendables Premiere recently, and also says he really enjoyed working with...

Cool Videos: Your move, Norris. Van Damme's zero gravity splits up the ante

Even though GRAVITY fell short of winning Best Picture at the Oscars last night, Alfonso Cuaron's film nabbed multiple technical awards and the trophy for directing. While I highly doubt there is a chance of a sequel, this video featuring Jean Claude Van Damme orbiting the Earth not only ups the ante on the Chuck Norris splits video . While it is not really Van Damme but rather a CGI...

Cool Videos: Chuck Norris wishes you a Merry Christmas because Chuck Norris

When he's not slamming revolving doors or single-handedly saving his co-stars in THE EXPENDABLES 2, Chuck Norris likes to get festive and share his holiday spirit with the world. Fellow onscreen asskicker Jean-Claude Van Damme threw down the guantlet earlier this year in viral ads, so naturally Chuck chose Christmas as the right time to respond in kind, showing true holiday cheer while...

Cool Videos: Awesome ode to John Woo's Hard Target featuring the unrated version's footage!

A few months ago I did a Best Movie You Never Saw on John Woo's HARD BOILED, which is a masterful action flick starring Chow Yun Fat. In that column I mentioned the uncut version of Woo's first American film, HARD TARGET, which stars Jean-Claude Van Damme in a modern take on The Most Dangerous Game. I am an unabashed fan of the film, but got my mitts on a copy of the unrated,...

Check out the trailer for Jean-Claude Van Damme's first comedy, Welcome to the Jungle

It is a shame that Jean-Claude Van Damme does not command the same box office that he did in the 90s. The man was a legend and each of his movies during that era was a hit. Whether it was UNIVERSAL SOLDIER or KICKBOXER or HARD TARGET, you knew you were going in to see a violent action movie with some martial arts and likely some female nudity. Van Damme's movies never pretended...

Cool Videos: Jean-Claude Van Damme. Splits. Enya. Nuff said.

Who doesn't love Jean-Claude Van Damme ? The guy defined the 1990s action movie for me with everything from UNIVERSAL SOLDIER, HARD TARGET, TIMECOP, and many more. In recent years he has faded from the top of Hollywood despite his great turn as a version of himself in JCVD and a villainous part in THE EXPENDABLES 2 and a voice role in KUNG FU PANDA 2. While he may not be getting a...
