Eric of Dark Planneur sent us news about Jean Claude Van Damme mania in Paris. After the success of the Belgian “Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis” (soon to be remade by Will Smith – “Welcome To The Ghetto”) this year, Paris seems to be looking for more inspiration from “Le Plat Pays” – which is also home to the next big thing: JCVD aka Jean Claude Van Damme. Eric says:

France is seemingly Americanized with its new belief in the ever so popular “Second Chance.” Just as “Rocky Balboa” resurrected Stalone, “JCVD” will be a perfect comeback for Van Damme, with an added independent movie touch on top of that. In “JCVD,” Van Damme plays himself, ultimately finding himself a hostage in a petty post office in Belgium. The film – a cross between biopic and fiction, is a cinematographic UFO that offers Van Damme the role of his life, as we've never seen him before : authentic, betrayed, sensitive, weakened, but never defeated!!!
