Dave Callaham (The Expendables) will write the screenplay and executive produce with Ridley Scott and David Zucker. Peter Atencio (Key and Peele) is set to  direct. The project has been in talks for a few years now and will likely start filming in May of this year.According to The Hollywood ReporterJean-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, this could be a direct sequel to the highly acclaimed amazing film ‘JCVD‘. How cool would that be? I’m just glad to see Van Damme getting some good work these days and I hope to see some awesome cameos of other actors from his other films here.

I can’t wait for ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson‘!
