Jean-Claude Van Damme and Vinnie Jones will team up in a film called Weapon, to be directed by Russell Mulcahy, the man responsible for Highlander and Resident Evil: Extinction. Weapon is the story of rival assassins, sharpshooter Jack Conway (Jones) and knife-wielding Derek Chase (Van Damme), who must blend their skills to foil the head of a drug cartel.
A knife man and a gun guy can’t get along? Where’s the tension? They serve two different purposes, really. I would have much rather heard the following synopsis:
"Jack Conway (Vinnie Jones) and Derek Chase (Jean-Claude Van Damme) are two expert knife throwers working for rival circuses, but when the evil head of a drug cartel begins to distribute narcotics to unwitting circus patrons via cotton candy, Conway and Chase must triumph over their differences in order to overthrow the cartel, one knife at a time.
"JCVD and Vinnie Jones are Big Top Blades
