For the first time in history, Netflix is shooting one of its films in Ukraine. It will be a comedy action movie called "The Last Mercenary", which will tell a story about political intrigue at the state level. Jean-Claude Van Damme and Alban Ivanov are on the list of actors.
This was announced by the Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko, who published a photo with Van Dam on his Telegram-channel.
The lion's share of filming will take place in Kyiv. Paris will also host the production. According to Tkachenko, the filming has already started and will continue until this fall.
