The mussels from Brussels is back on high-def, with Peace Arts announcing a late-April Blu-ray date for the Jean-Claude Van Damme actioner 'JCVD.'
Originally tagged a comeback vehicle for Van Damme on the order of Mickey Rourke in 'The Wrestler,' 'JCVD' sees the actor deliver a more mature, weathered performance in the crime thriller.
Unfortunately, and no doubt hampered by a title that sounds like a venereal disease, 'JCVD' failed to attract domestic moviegoers, and after a brief theatrical run, the film will essentially head straight-to-video on April 28 when Peace Arts releases the Blu-ray (day-and-date with the standard DVD).
No tech or supplement specs yet, but we'll keep you posted.
Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.95.
You'll find preliminary specs for 'JCVD' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under April 28.
