Just when you thought Manowar couldn’t get more homoerotic or muscular comes word of a collaboration with washed-up action star Jean Claude Van Damme.
Manowar will contribute songs to the soundtrack for “Soldiers,” starring Van Damme.
“I met with Joey DeMaio and explained my vision for the entire soundtrack,” says Jean Claude. “He will be writing original score as well as bringing Manowar songs to the movie.”
Who’d have figured Jean Claude Van Damme and Manowar would befriend one another?
Produced by Hollywood veteran and long-term Van Damme collaborator, action specialist Moshe Diamant, “Soldiers” follows Van Damme on an action-packed quest for righteousness, retribution and resurrection.
“Joey DeMaio has the musical ability to write fighting hymns, soulful ballads and deeply emotional scores,” said producer Moshe Diamant.
“We’ve always had a passion for movies, especially those that celebrate the values that matter for us: righteousness, honor, bravery. Contributing musically to such stories, and working with some of the greatest action heroes in cinema history is an honor and a pleasure. We are ready to deliver a powerful soundtrack to this really great movie,” DeMaio says.
“Soldiers” is scheduled for release in the spring of 2013.
I won’t be seeing it.
