Martial arts action star JEAN CLAUDE VAN DAMME (Kickboxer: Retaliation) is set to jump into ‘Taken’ mode in a $10 million budget action thriller THE BOUNCER.

The film is directed by JULIEN LECLERCQ (The Assault) and follows Van Damme as “Lukas, a nightclub bouncer in his fifties who’s taken punches, literally and figuratively, and struggles to raise his 8-year-old daughter. One day, Lukas loses control during an altercation with a client and ends up in jail, while his daughter gets placed under the care of social services. But things take an unexpected turn when Interpol recruits Lukas to bring down a Dutch ringleader operating from Belgium in exchange for his daughter’s custody”.

‘The Bouncer’ starts production in January 2018.
