Van Damme and Lundgren Want to Remind You They Don't Give a Shit

For Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, the last couple years have probably been the best since their fall from ass-kicking relevance to straight-to-video sadness in the '90s. Last year, Van Damme starred in JCVD, a self-aware comedic drama that received high marks from critics and fans; this year, Lundgren has been working on the set of Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables, a high profile action film that unites the star with the likes of Stallone, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham and other former/current action greats.

So, in case you were starting to get the wrong impression, that these two might be headed for greener jump-kicking pastures, they've decided to team up again and make another fucking Universal Solider movie. Just to make sure you know that they still don't give a shit. Whatever you'll pay them to do, straight-to-video producer.

I barely paid attention to this trailer, but I think the idea is the 1992 Mel Gibson film Forever Young with guns and an MMA fighter:

Does this mean Mickey Rourke is going to follow up Iron Man 2 with another straight-to-video sequel to 9½ Weeks?
