The person who calmly did the splits between two shifting semi vans and lived to inform the story is starring in a comedy from Amazon. Jean-Claude Van Johnson has Jean-Claude Van Damme enjoying a martial arts actor who ditches retirement and steps again into his position as an undercover personal contractor, in line with The Hollywood Reporter. Yep, significantly: He is moonlighting as a spy/murderer when not filming a “reimagined motion movie model of Huckleberry Finn” within the present. Expendables scribe Dave Callaham is hooked up to put in writing, so that ought to give a couple of clues of what to anticipate when it comes to tone.

It is Van Damme’s first TV position and it might hold him busy till the subsequent nostalgia-fueled venture rolls round. That is assuming it passes pilot muster and he does not take a spill whereas filming his subsequent excessive-stakes TV business, in fact.
