Whoever took over it's a whole new management philosophy.
Yes? Like someone saw the promise of Dragan's organization and decided to launch a Who do you think it was? Whoever took Dragan out.
How did you find me? Come in.
Have you eaten? I have Pop Tarts.
What is this place? I grew up here.
It was an orphanage then.
You were an orphan? I never knew my parents.
I don't understand.
Your grandfather, the emu farm Come.
I'll show you.
There was no emu farm.
No emu farm.
And no grandfather.
No JCVD, even.
Just JCVV.
Jean-Claude Van Varenberg.
An orphan.
A nobody.
That's why I didn't want to tell you.
I was afraid to tell you, because I was afraid you would not love me as JCVV.
And, um And, um I didn't think Nobody nobody loved JCVD.
You know? The man I killed at Dragan's, I keep seeing him.
Seeing his face.
You tried to warn me.
People always want the wrong things.
That's what makes them people.
No, JC.
I'm glad I keep seeing his face.
It's a reminder that we have to finish the job.
The job is over.
No, it's not.
Dragan's business is stronger than ever.
HK has hit every major city in the world, and it's only getting bigger.
People are dying.
But we stopped the bad guy.
I kicked a piece of marble into his brain.
We were used.
Someone wanted us to get rid of Dragan so they could take over his operation.
It was the client.
I don't have the client list.
Talk to Jane.
I can't talk to Jane.
We're out.
We blew cover.
Jane had to come in and shut down the movie.
UMA put us out in the cold, all of us.
I can't get inside.
But you can.
Has Jane called you? I threw my phone away.
Back in Bulgaria.
It doesn't matter.
Like you said yourself, we're cut off.
Johnson might be cut off.
But you're still Jean-Claude Van Damme.
We can get the client info.
All we have to do is take it.
JC I need this.
This is where I belong, though.
You're alone because you run from moments like this.
You can stay here with your ghosts.
But I think you want more than that.
Don't quit just because you're scared to fail.
Please hold.
Good morning.
I'm here to see Jane Hardy.
And you are ? Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Where? Mr.
Van Damme.
Hardy will be in a staff meeting for another 15 minutes, but I can take you upstairs now.
- Good morning.
- Morning.
- Good morning.
How are you? - Hi.
That color looks great on you.
Isn't Jane's office on the top floor? It is, but we're not going to Jane's office.
You new here? Never met you before.
I'm from a different department.
I don't like this guy.
You got to lose him.
Hey, I know Jason.
I want to say hello.
Van Damme.
Van Damme.
We really don't have time for this.
Just saying hello to Burns.
Where's the bathroom, please? Around the corner, Mr.
Van Damme.
Thank you so much.
Get to Jane.
I'll distract her assistant so you can get inside.
I'm sending the contracts now, and I'll have Jane contact you as soon as she gets back.
That'd be great.
Hello? Hi.
Madiflynn? - Yes? - Hi, Madiflynn, I'm calling from the Sundance Institute.
We loved your screenplay.
Which one? Uh one about the four 20-somethings trying to find their way in Bushwick? And one of them's a ghost of David Bowie? Tuesdays with Ziggy? Oh! Wow, this is so exciting.
Yeah, we were just wondering if you could tell us a little bit more about how it came to you.
Well, it all goes back to my first birthday.
My nanny said I was a very perceptive child, but I thought she was just being obdurate.
Well, imagine my surprise when, only six years later, I'm graduating from Tisch.
I'm in.
I'm not seeing anything but standard actor deals.
JC, are you hearing me? Shit.
There must be a secondary security protocol.
Director authorization recognized.
Security protocols engaged.
Okay, we're getting warmer.
Another server just popped up but it's offline.
Do you see anything else? JC? What's going on? Do you have something? Room secured.
Where are you? Some kind of hallway.
I'm looking at the blueprints.
There's no hallway.
Trust me.
It's here.
Where does it lead? A door.
Please provide voice identification.
Voice recognition.
I can't hack that.
No, but I can.
You have one saved message.
- Is that ? - First saved message.
I I thought you said you threw away your phone back in Bulgaria.
Jean-Claude it's Jane calling from the set of the movie you just ruined.
I'm guessing you've tucked your tail between your legs and crawled back into whatever hole you vanish into every single time things don't go your way.
So I wanted to hit you with some truth while you're there.
You can't hide, because the thing you're trying to run from it's inside you.
You will never escape it, so Analyzing voice sample.
Did it work? - Yeah.
- Identification accepted.
User logged in.
Server online.
Goddamn jackpot! I don't know what you did, but that server just opened up.
Welcome, Jane Hardy.
JC? JC? I just got off the phone with Shanghai.
They think we're undercapitalized in China.
Van Damme.
What an honor.
Who are you? Well, I guess you could say I am the face behind the curtain.
Morris? I thought you were a a rumor.
A legend.
Many could say the same about you, yeah? JC, I found something.
You weren't the only operative on the Dragan job.
I dream big.
Krisztina she works for you.
The best of our new generation of operatives.
As dangerous as she is beautiful.
So you plant her inside, and she collects all the details on Dragan's organization.
Why? There was no client.
This was an internal operation.
You wanted to control Dragan's business.
JC, we got what we need.
I'm copying it now.
Get the fuck out of there.
Of course we wanted Dragan's business.
This is the way of the world, Jean-Claude, or haven't you heard? Why settle for ten percent when you can own the whole damn thing?! That's why WME bought the UFC.
And cage fighting is chump change compared to the drug business.
Highest margins in the world.
You turned this place into a drug cartel? You say that as if it's any less honorable than running a talent agency.
You used me.
You used Jane.
"You use-ed me, you use-ed Jane.
" You didn't know, huh? You really didn't know? This is all her idea, doofy! You really didn't know? Oh, my God.
Honestly, whenever I think an actor can't get more self-absorbed, more blind to the world around them, more stupid Fuck.
We got to move.
Now! - Jean-Claude.
- Jane.
I was just leaving.
What? Before we have a chance to talk? Mm.
Why don't you come upstairs? Maybe another time.
Are you sure you have to go? I'm sure.
It's cold out there.
Sometimes it's good to be in the cold.
Where are we going? I know a place no one will ever come looking.
Where? When you have nowhere to run, you must run to nowhere.
