Derailed is a 2002 American action film directed by Bob Misiorowski, and starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Tomas Arana, Laura Harring and Jean-Claude Van Damme's real life son Kristopher Van Varenberg. The film was released on direct-to-DVD in the United States on October 15, 2002.


NATO operative Jacques Kristoff (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is summoned into action—on his birthday, no less—to track down Galina Konstantin (Laura Harring), who has stolen an extremely valuable and dangerous top-secret cargo.

Finding Galina doesn't take long, and Jacques must wrap up the mission by returning Galina and the contraband to his superiors by train.

Jacques's physician wife Madeline (Susan Gibney) isn't happy about this turn of events, no doubt having invested a small fortune in a Berlitz correspondence course and a year of acting lessons for Jacques's birthday.

But she sees him off at the train station with the couple's teenaged daughter Bailey Kristoff (Jessica Bowman) and son Ethan Kristoff (Kristopher Van Varenberg).

It seems Galina's ill-gotten gain is three vials of SP-43, an ultra-virulent strain of smallpox, cultured in fluorescent green serum.

It also seems that a group of terrorists, led by Mason Cole (Tomas Arana), intend to hijack the train and steal the virus for their own ends. But standing in their way is Jacques.

The virus ends up getting loose in the train's ventilation system. Unfortunately, Jacques's family picked this special moment to surprise him for his birthday by tagging along for the ride.

Jacques becomes a one-man army as he fights to protect his family and the other passengers, and stop Cole and his followers.

Dennis Cakar was announced to play in this movie as Ethan Kristoff, but the scenes were destroyed so they had to change the actor to Kristopher Van Varenberg, the reason was that Dennis Cakar went back to Sweden and the time limit was close to end.



It is set and filmed at Bolshevik and Sofia, Bulgaria, in 56 days on October 20 and December 15, 2001.
