Jean-Claude Van Damme plays a dual role the upcoming action film Replicant, the newest direct-to-video release from Artisan Home Entertainment.
A heinous serial killer (Van Damme) is stalking the streets of Chicago murdering young mothers. Detective Jake Riley (Michael Rooker) has come very close to catching him, but the killer always eluded him. Then, just when Jake retires from the force, the U.S. National Security Agency calls on him to take part in a secret new project. Jake learns that using DNA technology, a genetic clone has been created of the killer and this Replicant (Van Damme) will have the ability to see into the real killer’s mind.
At length Jake accepts the challenge of teaming up with this potentially dangerous Replicant and together they chase after the vicious killer.
Although, “Replicant” is a direct-to-video release, the DVD will contain a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack and anamorphic widescreen video. The disc will also contain deleted scenes, cast & crew biographies, and a theatrical trailer.
Coming October 16th this year, “Replicant” will carry a suggested retail price of $24.98.
