Jean Claude Van Damme's Next: The action star was in Madrid recently to announce the start of production on two new films of his. "The Tower" (aka."The Choice") he will write, direct and star in this $16-million budget flick as a retired race driver in Thailand who falls into a coma. That's when he has an out-of-body experience and appears inside a tower divided in levels (the level of logic, the level of fear, of love, etc.) and has to fight to get to the top Donkey Kong style (oi!). Then comes "After Death" to be directed by Ringo Lam ("Maximum Risk") and follows the story of a guy who goes to China to help a friend and finds him dead (it gets 6th Sense-ish after that).
