Jean-Claude Van Damme’s next will be “Pound of Flesh”.

The film reunites the actor with director Ernie Barbarash, the director on “Assassination Games” and “6 Bullets”, according to City on Fire.

The official synopsis ( via the production company’s website) :

In China to donate his kidney to his dying niece, Deacon (VAN DAMME), an former black-ops agent, awakes the day before the operation to find he is the latest victim of organ theft. Stitched up and pissed-off, Deacon descends from his opulent hotel in search of his stolen kidney and carves a blood-soaked path through the darkest corners of the city – brothels, fight clubs, back-alley black markets, and elite billionaire estates. The clock is ticking for his niece and with each step he loses blood; Deacon with the help of his former underworld connections and his civilian brother will journey through society’s seedy underbelly, proving to anyone who crosses their path, nothing means more to a man than his flesh and blood.

Van Damme has no less than 3 films due for release over the next twelve months, including “Enemies Closer”, “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Swelter”.
