Our friends at Arrow in the Head have been pointed in the direction of…. Well, this site right here….. which has a synopsis for the could-be-canned-now â€˜’Universal Soldier 3 : A New Beginning” (you’ll recall that P.J Pesce, director of “Lost Boys : The Tribe”, told us he was set to direct the picture but it’s fallen apart). The flick would/would’ve reunited original brawny twosome Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren. Interesting to note that the site lists Simon Fellows as the director – no idea if that’s a new development, or something that someone’s forgotten to remove from the page.
A crazed Chechen nationalist, BASAYEV, seizes control of Chernobyl, site of the infamous nuclear meltdown, and threatens to unleash a radioactive cloud unless his nationalist blackmail demands are met.
LUC DEVEREAUX (Jean-Claude Van Damme) joins a U.S. team of revived UniSoldiers secretly held in deep storage. Their mission: retake Chernobyl and disable explosives that will unleash the radioactive clouds. Luc is surprised when he finds one of the reactivated UniSoldiers is a clone of his old Sergeant, ANDREW SCOTT (Dolph Lundgren). But the cloned Andrew has no recollection of Luc.
As the team furiously battles its way into the Chernobyl plant, they are caught off guard. Using a mind-control chip, Baseyev turns Andrew against his own comrades. Now surrounded, wounded, and out-numbered, Luc must battle Andrew, and save the world.
