Första teasern för Jean Claude Van Dammes kommande ”The Eagle Path”, vilken han inte bara gör huvudroll i utan även regisserar och har skrivit. Steget över från skådespeleri till att arbeta bakom kameran är förvisso inget nytt för Van Damme som bl.a. klippte Bloodsport och skrev samt koreofgraferade Kickboxer, vad som dock är nytt är att han nu arbetar helt för sig själv tack vare det nya produktionbolaget Rodin Entertainment som han startat. Nedan ser ni teasern för The Eagle Path, och om ni klickar på Läs Vidare nedan kan ni läsa mer om de projekt som Rodin Entertainment har i produktion, bl.a. filmen Karate som ser ut att bli lite av en modern Bloodsport. Finns även posters till The Eagle Path, Karate, Itinerary of a Life och 4WD om ni läser vidare.

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.
