Van Damme re-teams with director of Timecop for action thriller Enemies Closer

Lionsgate Films has released a new poster for the Jean-Claude Van Damme action thriller Enemies Closer. The Peter Hyams-directed film also stars Orlando Jones and Tom Everett Scott. Enemies Closer reunites Jean-Claude Van Damme with Hyams, who directed the ‘Muscles from Brussels’ in 1994’s Timecop and 1995’s Sudden Death, two of Van Damme’s biggest hits. Hyams also directed such action classics as The Star Chamber, Outland and Capricorn One.

Enemies Closer begins after a major shipment of drugs goes missing on the US-Canadian border, forcing forest ranger and former Navy SEAL Henry (Tom Everett Scott) into survival mode, when a 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 (Orlando Jones), 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. Jean-Claude Van Damme’s character in the film is listed as Xander.

Enemies Closer is set to hit select theaters and VOD on January 24th, 2014. Check out the poster, below.
