“I’ve wanted to work with Jean-Claude Van Damme for so many years and i’m very excited to be finally getting to work with him on such a great project as Pound of Flesh. I love the script and the team that Director Ernie Barbarash and the Producers have put together for this film, including fight choreographer John Salvitti who i am also a huge fan of. I look forward to working hard with everyone to make an awesome action thriller that will make the fans very happy and deliver on all levels. I’d like to thank Mike Leeder for bringing me to the attention of Jean-Claude, Ernie and the rest of the Producers and pushing for me as always.”

Jean Claude Van Damme has signed on to star Ernie Barbarash’s latest movie Pound Of Flesh. They have worked together on two movies before, which are 6 Bullets and Assassination Games with Scott Adkins.
Film follows Van Damme’s character – a former military man forced to walk the road of vengeance when a chance encounter with a beautiful woman ends with him waking up in a bathtub full of ice… and the kidney he had planned to donate to the dying daughter of his estranged brother, on its way to the hands of the highest bidder.
“I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into Pound of Flesh because it’s exactly the kind of character-driven action thriller I and my fans love best — a movie that delivers nonstop hardcore action that’s fueled by a really surprising story and real people you care about from the moment you meet them on screen,” said Van Damme in a statement.
Filming will be shooting in China and John Salvitti will serve as a fighting choreographer.
