Jean-Claude Van Damme Set To Take On Rich Criminals In LUXURY MEETS JUSTICE

The last person I think anyone would expect to step into the field of action cinema would be Michel Adam, founder and sole owner of the 24-hour glamour and beauty-oriented lifestyle network, Fashion TV. Apparently, action is where it is at this stage of his career in having announced a new $40 million dollar project this month with revived Hollywood action star Jean-Claude Van Damme for a new film series called Luxury Meets Justice.

The South China Morning Post covered the story a few days ago as Van Damme is currently in Hong Kong scouting for new talent. He said, "We want to help young talents who are ready to explode in China, Chinese national treasures in a sense,". He also expressed his sentiments for the Chinese government regarding his current ambitions for the film, saying, "We want to work with the government of China to show them our good faith, to create a franchise in China followed by a TV series and video game,... Today in China, they have everything. They have great crews and computer graphics [specialists]. We want to grow on that, to become partners."

The Wall Street Journal's own Dan Napolitano covered the news on Friday, which included a video embed where Van Damme and Adam talk more about the project:


Van Damme will play an undercover agent who will infiltrate the world of the ultra-rich and take on corporate criminal elites bent on fattening their wallets at the expense of the working class. The first film will begin production next year, pending the release of his next film with Peter Hyams directing, Enemies Closer, followed by the heist thriller, Swelter.

Stay tuned.
