You can’t make this stuff up. This Friday, August 19, Amazon Video is set to debut a pilot for a new Jean-Claude Van Damme series, Jean-Claude Van Johnson.
Any show starring Jean-Claude Van Damme bold enough to call itself Jean-Claude Van Johnson gets my vote. Martial arts star Van Damme, known for his roles as The Kickboxer and Bloodsport in the 90s, is looking to make his big comeback via television. Thanks to Amazon Video, we’ll be able to follow the renowned action star as one of the most skilled and deadly undercover private contractors who comes out of retirement to take on the world’s bad guys. Of course.
The Muscles from Brussels will be starring alongside Kat Foster, Moises Arias, and Phylicia Rashad. For now, all we have is a synopsis and some stills, but I can’t wait for the trailer.
A famous action hero/martial arts star comes out of retirement to assume an alter ego as undercover private contractor named Jean-Claude Johnson.
Update: I found a teaser trailer.
