Van Damme’s New Comedy Films May


It has been a while since anything for Jean Claude Van Damme has been posted on this site.  Unlike Drago or the Sensei, the man appears to be a lot more picky about what he appears in these days.

According to THR, Jean Claude Van Damme will make a pilot for an Amazon exclusive series called Jean-Claude Van Johnson. The show has an interesting plot:

Jean-Claude Van Johnson will star Van Damme as a version of himself — a famous actor and martial arts pro who comes out of retirement to resume his alter-ego: an undercover private contractor by the name of Jean-Claude Van Johnson. The comedy/action thriller will see Johnson’s cover as the lead role in a reimagined action film version of Huckleberry Finn that lands him back in the midst of the danger he secretly always craves. It also brings him back in the orbit of Vanessa, his fellow operative and the love of his life that got away.

So David Schwimmer is also apparently going to be the villain in this one.  Maybe since this is with Amazon, the budget might be reasonable too.
