Jean-Claude Van Damme is set to headline the $10 million action thriller “The Bouncer” which Julien Leclercq (“Prost”) will helm and which begins filming in January.
Van Damme will play a nightclub bouncer in his fifties who struggles to raise his eight-year-old daughter. One day, he loses control during an altercation with a client and ends up in jail, while his daughter gets placed under the care of social services.
Things take an unexpected turn when Interpol recruits him to bring down a Dutch ringleader operating from Belgium, in exchange for his daughter’s custody. Jeremie Guez penned the script and will produce with Julien Madon and Aimee Buidine.
