The Package is the new film from Jesse V. Johnson, who is mostly known as a stunt coordinator of Beowulf and Charlie’s Angels, he also directed such films as The Last Sentinel with Don The Dragon Wilson and Alien Agent with Mark Dacascos etc.
This is his 10th directorial project with the following synopsis: A courier for a local crime lord must deliver a mysterious package while being chased by a horde of unusual gangsters.
Second time Dolph Ludgren and Steve Austin appearing in the movie together, since 2010, where they both starred in a Sylvester Stallone blockbuster action movie The Expendables. Austin plays a ‘Transporter’ type character who has to deliver an unknown package to Lundgren’s character The German, but it would not be an easy ride, because he will meet other criminals, and two of them played by Darren Shahlavi (Twister from Ip Man 2) and Jerry Trimble.
Jesse Johnson apparently has a very positive view of Steve Austin, as he told me: “Steve is doing great work, too, the man is fearless, and very, very focused. We’re all taking this one very seriously.”
Steve Austin has been transforming into a reliable action presence on screen, as the big guy from the WWE world he has accomplished something Hulk Hogan never did, and something John Cena still has to do.
