Frenchy[1] (formerly known as Full Love, Soldiers and The Eagle Path) is an upcoming action drama written, produced, edited, and directed by Jean-Claude Van Damme, who also stars in the film as the main character Frenchy. The film also features two of his children, Kristopher Van Varenberg and Bianca Bree.

The first edit of the film was screened under the former title The Eagle Path during a special distributor screening at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival to find a distribution company for a potential theatrical release, but with no success. For that reason, in 2012, parts of the film were reshot and scenes added, the film was renamed Soldiers.[2] Two years after, a new cut of the film with a title change to Full Love, was shown during a special distributor screening at the 2014 Shanghai International Film Festival.[3][4] In 2018, Van Damme attended the Cannes Film Festival again and unsuccessfully tried to find a theatrical distributor for the third time. In 2020, the film was re-edited and renamed again to Frenchy and is still in search of a distributor.[5]
