Hey, what’s Dolph Lundgren up to?

The Hollywood Reporter fills us in on the career activities of the onetime Ivan Drago, announcing that Lundgren will be directing and starring in Command Performance, an action thriller (what else?) he co-wrote with Steve Latshaw.

According to the article, Lundgren got his directing start with 2004’s The Defender, stepping in for the original director after he “fell ill” — and since stepping behind the camera, Lundgren’s feeling much better about the quality of his films. The storyline for Command Performance, from the Reporter:

Lundgren describes “Command” as ” ‘Die Hard‘ at a rock concert,” with the story focusing on a drummer for the warm-up band of a big American performer giving a concert for the Russian premier. Naturally, the bad guys break up the show. And just as naturally, the drummer is an ex-Marine.

“I got the idea from Madonna,” Lundgren said. “She did a concert for (Russian President Vladimir) Putin a few years ago.”

And check it out: Lundgren is not only directing, starring, and helped write the script, but that’ll really be him behind the drum kit during the performance scenes. As he tells the Reporter:

I used to play when I was a kid. Now I play at wrap parties after I’ve had a few tequila shots. It’ll be fun.
