Van Damme Wraps POUND OF FLESH In China
Principal photography has just wrapped on Jean Claude Van Damme's latest martial arts thriller, Pound of Flesh, which was filming at ACE Studios in Nanhai, China under the direction of regular collaborator Ernie Barbarash (6 Bullets, Assassination Games).
JCVD stars alongside British actor Darren Shahlavi, familiar to many from his work in Ip Man 2 and Mortal Kombat Legacy, as well as Hong Kong's Jason Tobin (Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift), Andrew Ng (The Man With The Iron Fists) and veteran performer Aki Aleong. The film also stars John Ralston, Charlotte Peters and Marsha Yuen.
Produced by Kirk Shaw and Henry Luk, with Mike Leeder as co-producer, Pound of Flesh features fight choreography from John Salvitti, whose work with Donnie Yen has been highly praised in films such as Flashpoint and Special ID, and will next be seen in the upcoming Kung Fu Killer/Last of the Best. Car stunts were overseen by Hong Kong veterans Bruce Law Stunts Unlimited.
Pound of Flesh stars Van Damme as an ex-military man whose chance encounter with a beautiful woman ends with him waking up in a bathtub full of ice and his kidney missing. Having promised to donate it to the dying daughter of his estranged brother, Van Damme must walk a bloody road of vengeance before his kidney is sold to the highest bidder!
