When he's not doing epic splits, Jean-Claude Van Damme is also making movies, and his latest, "Swelter," might get you hot under the collar. And certainly the heat is coming off this first image. He stars alongside Alfred Molina, Lennie James, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Freya Tingley in the thriller which has just left the American Film Market having pretty much sold out around the world.

Jean-Claude Van Damme Swelter

When he's not doing epic splits, Jean-Claude Van Damme is also making movies, and his latest, "Swelter," might get you hot under the collar. And certainly the heat is coming off this first image. He stars alongside Alfred Molina, Lennie James, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Freya Tingley in the thriller which has just left the American Film Market having pretty much sold out around the world. The North American deal will be announced soon, but until then, here's the official synopsis:

SWELTER is the story of the most notorious robbery in Las Vegas history. Five men, nicknamed the Rat Pack, hit the Luxor Casino for over one hundred million dollars. Four of the men are soon captured, while one barely escapes. Ten years later, after blasting their way out of a maximum-security prison, the four jailed members of the Rat Pack are hot on the trail of their former accomplice and the remaining ten million in stolen cash. The trail leads them to a dying desert town less than a hundred miles from the scene of the crime where they find their former partner is not the man he once was...he's become a law-abiding sheriff without any memory of his past. The sheriff must now remember his violent history in order to protect all that he holds dear.
