Jean-Claude Van Damme is back. He was huge in the 80s. Now he is back in movies and commercials.
This week Jean-Claude Van Damme makes headline with a movie he never actually end up doing. The Stan Winston School published an interview with Makeup FX innovator Steve Johnson who told the funny story of the original Predator costume.
If you remember Predator movie (1987) with Arnold Schwarzenegger there was an invisible alien. Jean-Claude Van Damme was first casted to play that alien. The special effects suit looked like a red lobster. Nobody apparently told Van Damme that this was not how viewers would see him. He also did not know that he would be invisible in the movie. He ended up dropping out of Predator. Watch the story with original footage from filming Jean-Claude Van Damme in the red bug outfit below.
