In Darkness of Man Van Damme portrays Russell Hatch, an Interpol operative who witnesses the death of his last informant in a routine raid gone wrong. Years later Hatch takes on a father figure role to the son of the informant, Jayden (Min). Set against the backdrop of Los Angeles, Hatch finds himself protecting Jayden and his uncle Mr. Kim from a group of merciless gangs in an all-out turf war. Turning into a fight to survive, Hatch will stop at nothing to protect Jayden and fight anyone getting in his way, including supposed allies with hidden agendas and nefarious intents. Per THR

Van Damme will play an “out of shape” Interpol agent in the film directed which also stars Kristanna Loken, Emerson Min, Sticky Fingaz, Spencer Breslin, Andrey Ivchenko, Peter Jae and Nick Diaz. James Cullen Bressack helms the film which was written by Alethea Cho and Bressack from an original story created by Bressack and Van Damme.

Production has wrapped on the movie and VMI Worldwide is handling worldwide sales at the EFM with financing being provided by Bondit Media Capital.

A teaser sales poster was also unveiled yesterday which showcases a brooding Van Damme. The key art is for promotion only but it does have a noirish look to it.
