The announcement that will not please the fans of Jean-Claude Van Damme
The actor Jean-Claude Van Damme will soon star in an action movie called What's My Name, in which he will play himself. But it will be the last one.
I wanted to leave the stage with a revisit of my career, starting with the movie Bloodsport, which is where I started to become famous. We're going to bring real elements of my real life and what happened to me. I came from Belgium, I came all the way to Hollywood. I made it, I failed, I came back. I'm walking down the street after the premiere, and boom! A car hits me because I'm drunk. When I wake up from the impact, I don't know what my name is, and nobody recognizes me, he explained.
JCVD has indeed revealed that he wants to stop his career after this film. At 61 years old, he aspires to retire and enjoy life.
I bought a small boat, not a big boat - it's not for me - but I want to go around the world, and relax. I've worked all my life, I've lived in hotels for 30 years I want to relax and enjoy my life and my family, because life goes by fast, he added.
