Vincent Brazil (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is a contract killer, willing to take any job if the price is right.

When a contract is put out on the same cold blooded drug dealer, both Brazil and Flint want him dead: one for the money, the other for revenge.

Development

Assassination Games began development under the working title The Weapon with Russel Mulcahy attached to direct. Initially Steven Seagal had signed on to star alongside Van Damme with the film's plot synopsis notably different from the final version:

In The Weapon, Jack Conway (Steven Seagal) and Derek Chase (Jean-Claude Van Damme) are the two best assassins in the world but unknown to each other. While Conway is a master sharpshooter, Chase is equally skilled with a knife. These two rival assassins form an uneasy alliance to take down the head of a drug cartel.

After Steven Seagal was dropped out of the role, Vinnie Jones was considered to replace Seagal though the role eventually went to Scott Adkins.
