For his follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘JCVD’, Jean-Claude Van Damme has readied his latest film “Eagle Path.” Not only does he star in the film but, it is actually helmed by Van Damme.
This is his second directorial outing as he had previously directed and starred in the “The Quest” back in 1996. You can check out the trailer below. Van Damme turned down a role in Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming film, ‘The Expendables,’ which stars many of his action film peers such as Dolph Lundgren, Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham.
A military veteran and former mercenary, Frenchy (Van Damme) works as a taxi driver, hiding somewhere in East Asia, haunted by his past. After his driving shifts he often frequents the Eagle’s Nest, a seedy bar that houses a caged eagle. In the midst of the chaotic Asian traffic Frenchy picks up a beautiful female passenger who will change him forever.
Driven by dark memories of his childhood, he becomes determined to improve her life and, without her approval, he embarks on a journey which proves to be more dangerous and complicated then he expected. After encountering a series of harrowing obstacles he calls in favors from his special ops friends who immediately join him. His military team engages in the biggest fight of their lives. War is hell, but nothing they’ve done could have prepared them for this.
