Jean-Claude Van Damme

The SCMP ran a bit of a puff piece on a new movie from the fertile minds of former ballet dancer-turned-action star Jean Claude Van Damme and the ubiquitous Michel Adam, Founder of Fashion TV.

The movie is called, er, Luxury Meets Justice and is about white collar criminals being brought to justice and will, no doubt, have plenty of scenes where Eastern Europe girls frolic with the actor they call The Muscles From Brussels. Or should that be Mussels?

Anyway, the main idea is to have some kinda television talent show to discover a new action star from China who can appear in this epic and which will propel him into International star.

Hmmm, doesn’t Bam Bam need a project to bring him back to B Grade mediocrity?

Both Bam Bam and Adams, whose business style reminds many of Alistair Patten, the Founder of M1NT, go into huge dollops of fawning about working with the Chinese government, Chinese government media outlets, the Great Wall Of China, all of China’s noodle shops etc to make this happen and the fawning went on and on for so long, we nodded off.

Really exciting stuff. Not.
