Golan set on ‘Armstrong’

Veteran action director Menahem Golan will helm his first U.S. pic in four years with “Armstrong,” a low-budget thriller for Nu Image starring David Bradley and Sean Young, sources said Wednesday.

Golan and David Dadon also will produce the pic as the first fruit of their new production company, Golan/Dadon Impact Pictures Intl.

“Armstrong,” scripted by Joseph Goldman, starts lensing July 1 in Moscow, New York and Sofia, Bulgaria.

Joe Laura and Richard Lynch will co-star in the thriller about a CIA agent who must work with a KGB operative to battle the mob. Pic takes place just after the U.S. and Russia have signed a post-disarmament treaty.

Nu Image chairman Avi Lerner and president Danny Dimbort are exec producers.

Golan, who redefined genre actioners during his longtime partnership with Yoram Globus, produced and directed dozens of pics including “Delta Force,” “Operation Thunderbolt” and “Enter the Ninja.”

He last helmed an indie project called “Road to Glory” in Minsk, Russia.
