"People still #$&* me. It's very difficult to become...ah...invincible. Stallone, Arnold and all those guys were screwed on the way up. Oh my God! Stories you wouldn't believe. Me, too."
Jean-Claude Van Damme
While digging through some items in storage I came across a couple press kits for JCVD flicks like Double Impact and Maximum Risk. Double Impact was Van Damme's first decent budgeted flick but got short changed when fellow Stone Group Pictures production Stone Cold, featuring football player and wannabe movie star Brian Bosworth, went over budget. While DI cost around $15 million, SC started at $10 then ended up costing around $25 million after original director Bruce Mulmuth (Steven Seagal's Hard to Kill) was fired weeks into production and replaced by Craig R. Baxley ( I COME IN PEACE!).
Universal Soldier while cementing his position as a challenger and usurper to Arnold Schwarzenegger while Bosworth wouldn't pop up in a movie for another 5 years.
It's not quite Cobra but still pretty Damme entertaining:
