A 3D Universal Soldier IV in the Works

The Hollywood Reporter says Foresight Unlimited is moving forward with fall shoots for action thrillers Universal Soldier IV and Recoil.

The fourth “Universal Soldier” installment will reunite Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, who co-starred in the 1992 original and the third installment, Universal Soldier: Regeneration in 2009. John Hyams is also returning to direct the film, which will start shooting in October and be released in 3D.

Mark Steven Johnson (Daredevil, Ghost Rider) will direct Recoil, a $35 million project about a former FBI sniper dragged back into action when his ex-wife is targeted by a deranged sniper. Shooting is set to start in November.

The company will be selling both projects at the Cannes Film Festival, along with Flypaper and The Ledge.

The suspense drama The Ledge, written and directed by Matthew Chapman, stars Terrence Howard, Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson and Charlie Hunnam “in the story of a suicidal man and the traumatized detective who tries to talk him down.”

Flypaper, which stars Patrick Dempsey, is scheduled to begin filming next month in Louisiana. The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore wrote the film, which “is about a man caught in the middle of two simultaneous robberies as he tries to protect the teller with whom he’s secretly in love.”
