There were breathless reports yesterday that Jean Claude Van Damme collapsed on the set of a movie he was filming and had suffered a heart attack and that filming had been halted and that it might not be completed. Well, pretty much all of that is wrong. The way it really happened is that Jean Claude Van Damme was feeling tightness in his chest and drove himself to the hospital. There may have been a very minor heart attack, but Jean Claude is doing fine and is back in Belgium with his wife.
The movie itself was almost finished and the only thing left to shoot were some closeups which they are working around.
I miss Jean Claude movies. They were always a great way to escape for a couple of hours and basically all had the same formula so if you were flipping through channels and came upon one, even if it was in the middle you pretty much knew what had happened and where it was going.
