Jean-Claude Van Damme, the veteran action icon, has been cast for the sequel of Kill ‘Em All.
The upcoming movie will be shot in Antigua and Barbuda starting in January.
Italian producer Andrea Iervolino, who was assigned by local authorities last year to expand entertainment investment opportunities in the West Indies, is bringing the first shoot to the island with a focus on enriching Antigua and Barbuda through film and TV shoots.
Dr Dario Item, Ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda to Spain, the Principality of Monaco, the Principality of Liechtenstein, and to the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), is collaborating with Iervolino on the promotional push.
After the events that happened in Kill ‘Em All (2017), Phillip (Van Damme) and Suzanne are retired from the spy game and are living in seclusion.
However, their location is discovered by Vlad, the vengeful brother of their target from the previous film, and their peaceful life is disturbed.
The sequel is written by James Agnew, and Bianca Brigitte Van Damme will star alongside her father. The movie is produced by Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi through their publicly held studio Iervolino & Lady Bacardi Entertainment.
Andrea Iervolino, CEO of ILBE, expressed his delight and honor that Jean-Claude Van Damme has agreed to be part of this exciting project.
He also mentioned that the unique atmosphere and beauty of Antigua will provide an extraordinary backdrop for the production of this film.
The initiative aims not only to strengthen their commitment to the film industry but also to help build cultural and collaborative ties between Europe and the West Indies.
Ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda Dario Item welcomed the project as an example of cross-continental collaboration that will bring lasting benefits to their communities.
He also stated that the initiative is an important step in strengthening cultural and artistic ties between nations, and they are pleased to support a project that promotes the art of cinema and raises awareness of Antigua and Barbuda globally.
Jean-Claude Van Damme is represented by AAC and Rodin Entertainment.
