Jean Claude Van Damme in new 'Asterix' movie
Jean Claude Van Damme's obviously split his piggy bank down the middle and discovered there's no green in there, because he's just signed up for something that doesn't sound like his usual pint of lager. Variety reports that the action superstar - whose latest film, 'Kumite', tipped to be his comeback, has reportedly fallen though - has signed to star in a third live-action 'Asterix' movie. 'Asterix at the Olympic Games,' to be directed by Frederic Forestier, will see The Muscles from Brussels playing Cornedurus, Roman olympic winner during the reign of the emperor Cesar. Yup, that's Van Damme in a toga. Gerard Depardieu will reprise his role as Obelix, but producers are on the lookout for a new Asterix, previously played by Christian Clavier in the first two live-action efforts.
