He used to be “super famous.” Now, he goes by Jean-Claude Van Johnson.
This legendary action star is making his comeback (sort of…) in this upcoming Amazon series, but this time with a slight twist: The show features global martial arts and film sensation Jean-Claude Van Damme as “Jean-Claude Van Damme,” a global martial arts and film sensation…and, operating under the simple alias of ‘Johnson,” the most dangerous undercover operative in the world. Unhappily retired, he’s now whiling away his days in superficial Hollywood until a chance encounter with a lost love lures him back into the game, eventually forcing him to confront the greatest enemy he’s ever faced: a Bulgarian drug cartel.
Just kidding, it’s himself.
This comedic-action genre bender was created and written by Dave Callaham and directed by Peter Atencio, and executive-produced with Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker at Scott Free Productions and Van Damme himself.
“Jean-Claude Van Johnson” is set to premiere December 15th on Amazon Prime.
