Darkness of Man | James Cullen Bressack on Directing a Noir Action Thriller

After years of action films, director James Cullen Bressack is trying something different with a noir-action movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme in Darkness of Man. The film stretches Van Damme’s acting repertoire into a more vulnerable, depressed lawman.

The film also stars Kristanna Loken, Emerson Min, and Spencer Breslin, with Kirk “Sticky Fingas” Jones and Shannon Doherty.

Here is the synopsis of Darkness of Man:

Russell Hatch (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is a washed up, former Interpol operative who vowed to protect the son of an informant killed years earlier in a raid gone wrong. When merciless street gangs start an all-out turf war and the kid is caught in the middle, Hatch will stop at nothing to keep him safe and fight anyone who gets in his way.
