Jean-Claude Van Damme leads The Final Mercenary, which can premiere July thirtieth on the streaming platform. At present, Netflix put out the trailer, which appears to indicate that even at 60, the Muscular tissues From Brussels will not be prepared for a pleasant quiet lifetime of gardening simply but.
The official synopsis of Van Damme’s first film in two years, reads, “Richard Brumère, aka ‘La Brume’ (‘The Mist‘), a former French secret service special agent turned mercenary, is back in the saddle as the immunity he was granted 25 years earlier for his son Archibald is lifted.
