Oh, 'Timecop'? We'll explain it in the article.

Good news for fans of Jean-Claude Van Damme movies that they feel would have been better without Jean-Claude Van Damme! You’re getting a remake of one of his classics.

Nope. Not Bloodsport. Not Kickboxer. Not Universal Soldier. TIMECOP!

Remarkably, this sequel has been in the works since 2010, which means it pretty much pre-dated the more notable remakes of Robocop and Total Recall from that era.

The new film will be more of a police story with the sci-fi aspects “in the background,” so expect to see a loose cannon cop beating a perp with a phone book to get a confession while a hovering car floats silently in the background.

Not much else is known, other than there is no mention of JCVD anywhere, which makes me think this whole thing is some sort of sick joke.

Universal is moving forward with a Timecop remake even though the original is damn near perfect the way it is and they’re just wasting film and mucking up the good name of Timecop by trying to improve on the Jean-Claude Van Damme film who they say won’t even be involved in this one because they’re taking Timecop in a different direction that still involves the concept of time-travel and cops but maybe some dinosaurs this time because I can’t think of a better way to make Timecop any better unless there are dinosaurs but they should still involve Ron Silver somehow because it was awesome when he melted in the first one and they wouldn’t even have to reshoot that but he’s since passed away so I don’t know maybe a hologram? (THR)

The best orgy-based comedy to come out in quite some time, A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy, will be available soon on Unrated DVD. But if you want awkward sex, the magical world of the movies has plenty of delightful options for you. It can range from funny to sad to just bizarre, but a good awkward sex scene sticks in your memory, probably forever. Here are some of the most awkward, intentional or otherwise

Check out all the Sony “Action Unleashed” DVDs!

Vacation

Clark Griswold probably doesn’t get to do it with his wife that often – after all, they are married. So when the opportunity presents itself, Sparky doesn’t let the fact that they’re crammed in a tiny sleeping bag with a feral mutt at their feet stop him. The result is one of the funniest awkward sex scenes around, although they admittedly don’t get that far into the amorous process. Damn dog.

Pusher II

Tonny’s been in jail for a while, and it hasn’t exactly been good for his sex life. The possibly permanent brain damage he suffered at the hands of a friend he sent upriver isn’t helping either. That becomes painfully clear in this harrowing scene, in which Tonny struggles dutifully to get it up in front of two prostitutes. It’s a pretty tough scene to watch – in fact, “awkward” is probably an understatement.

Even though Jean-Claude Van Damme is universally recognized as a dangerous badass, people seem to believe that they can piss him off and get away with it. Even today, in 2011, with the release of his latest thriller Assassination Games, bad guys all around seem to think they can handle the JCVD. In the interest of learning vicariously from the mistakes of others, here are a few of their stories. For your reading pleasure, 8 villains who made the mistake of pissing off Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Check out the wide assortment of Sony “Action Unleashed” DVDs!

Chong Li, Bloodsport

I guess it would be difficult to blame Chong Li for thinking he could take on Jean-Claude Van Damme. After all Bloodsport was one on JCVD‘s first starring roles, so his reputation was not as set in stone as it is today. He learned his lesson the hard way, though, being forced into submission after trying to blind Van Damme with an underhanded trick during their climactic kickboxing match. Even cheating won’t save you once you piss off Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Fender Tremolo, Cyborg

Some villains make the mistake of thinking that they can get away with pissing off Jean-Claude Van Damme just because they live in a post-apocalyptic hellscape. WRONG. In Cyborg, Fender Tremolo has a band of pirates to back him up, and he still ends up hanging from a meat hook, courtesy of Jean-Claude Van Damme.

‘Timecop’ To Be Remade As Big Budget Blockbuster http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/timecop-to-be-remade-as-big-budget-blockbuster/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/timecop-to-be-remade-as-big-budget-blockbuster/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 'JUDO-TAINT!!!!" The film that dared to bring us two Ron Silvers is coming back. Universal has announced that they plan to actually write the word "Timecop" down on paper, follow it with more pages featuring description and dialogue, hire a director to wear a baseball cap that reads "Timecop" on the front, convince an actor to play a "Timecop," and then spend money on actually getting this thing made, and mass-produce billboards and other marketing materials that say "Timecop." Sadly, they will not cast Jean Claude Van Damme to reprise his role as the cop who cops time for this one. Good luck finding an actor who can make his foot hover in front of people's faces. They don't teach that skill. You're born with it. (What's Playing)
