Dolph Lundgren will star in and direct Millennium/Nu Image’s action thriller “Command Performance” which he co-wrote with Stave Latshaw reports Reuters.
The story follows a drummer for the warm-up band of a big American performer giving a concert for the Russian premier. Naturally, the bad guys break up the show. And just as naturally, the drummer is an ex-Marine.
The former major action star began directing with 2004’s “The Defender”. His most recent directing and acting vehicle, Sony’s “Missionary Man,” premieres at next week’s AFI Dallas festival.
Lundgren will not be using a stunt double for the truly complicated scenes, including the percussion sequences. “Command” is scheduled to shoot in Moscow and Bulgaria’s Nu Boyana Studios in the summer.
