"Double Impact" is arguably one of action legend Jean-Claude Van Damme's best films, for two reasons: It's got double the Van Dammage and another face-off against the great Bolo Yeung (who played his "Bloodsport" nemesis).
When we met JCVD last week, we took the opportunity to ask him about the "Double Impact" days -- and Van Damme began to gush about the possibility of a sequel.
"I wrote the script with a friend of mine Sheldon - He [co-wrote] "Bloodsport" and "Double Impact" with me," he told us. "Hopefully, somebody smart enough, like an agent or a producer, can put that back together...I'm excited about it, you know?"
One of the things Van Damme stressed was the lack of franchises in his career: "I have no franchise. I lost 'Bloodsport,' 'Lionheart.'"
"'Double Impact' [would be] a great franchise," he told us, explaining how he thinks his twin characters Chad and Alex might have evolved. "Today, Chad would be like the guy in 'JCVD' and Alex would be the guy like 'The Expendables.'"
