Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.15.13] action thriller

It's all sorts of family working on the upcoming Peter Hyams thriller Enemies Closer. Hyams returns to direct Jean-Claude Van Damme while Hyams' son John steps away from the camera and into the editing bay to cut dad's film together. It's B-movie royalty working together and the resulting movie looks kind of badass if a little convoluted. I'm not sure what Tom Everett Scott and Orlando Jones have against each other but the pair is forced to work together when they stumble on Van Damme and his cartel cronies in the woods.

There's something about missing drugs and Van Damme trying to kill the pair in an effort to find the missing drugs... here's the official synopsis which only seems to provide half of the story:

After a major shipment of drugs goes missing on the US-Canadian border, forest ranger and former Navy SEAL Henry is plunged into survival mode when the drug cartel forces him to help retrieve the downed package. Trapped in the wilderness with no communication to the outside world, Henry finds himself face to face with Clay, a man with a personal vendetta against Henry who has returned for retribution. Now, the two mortal enemies must make a choice: put aside their past and work together, or die alone at the hands of the drug runners, a ruthless gang who will stop at nothing to retrieve their lost cargo.

What's important here is that Enemies Closer actually looks pretty good and Van Damme is kicking ass. Again.
