Prepping: Steven Seagal isn’t the last action hero to move behind the camera. Jean-Claude Van Damme will make his directorial debut with-as well as star in-The Quest, a martial- arts opus to be shot in China and Thailand this summer.

Planning: Ralph Fiennes was an enemy of the people in Schindler’s List, but he and Kevin Kline may soon star in the upcoming drama Old Friends.

Plotting: Tim Daly plays doctor in Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde, the umpteenth version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s gothic tale. As the Ms. in the title, Sean Young will display those comic skills she recently honed in Fatal Instinct and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Set to be filmed in Montreal this spring, Jekyll will be unleashed later this year.
