Seagal spawn signs pic pact with Miracle

Martial-arts ace is chip off the old block

Kentaro Seagal, Tommy Hilfiger clothing model and son of action star Steven Seagal, has embarked on an acting career, inking a five-picture, seven-figure deal with 1st Miracle Pictures, the company formed by recently reunited action filmmaking team Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus.

Seagal’s first picture under the pact will be the lead role in “Renegade Blade,” to be directed by Steve Jankowski and produced by John Shepphird. Jankowski and Shepphird also co-wrote the story, about a mysterious stranger educated in the ways of the samurai warrior, who’s enlisted to defend a commune of peaceful hippies against their maniacal, estranged leader. Seagal is a trained martial artist.

“He’s the next Jean-Claude Van Damme,” said Golan.

Longtime partners Golan and Globus, who have directed and produced dozens of action pics such as “Delta Force” and “Death Wish,” split up seven years ago when their film company, Cannon Pictures, went bust.

Production on “Renegade” is slated to begin in late spring.

Seagal’s deal was negotiated by his manager, Steven Fenton, and attorneys Karl Austen and Howard Fishman.
