As cheesey as some of his movies can be (Transporter 3, War, etc.), he’s a tough guy, and would certainly kick your ass if you told him you hated one of his movies. (I’ve seen him do this. He once bludgeoned a guy because he said Transporter 2 could have been better. True story.)
Statham’s next role, no surprise, involves kicking and punching people in their faces. Awesome? I say so.
Jason will be taking on the role of Arthur Bishop, originally played by Charles Bronson back in 1972.
The Mechanic is a tale of Arthur Bishop, who works for “The Orginazation.” Eventually the killer of killers finds himself training the son of one of his victims as the film turns into a case of the pupil overtaking the master.
Filming is set to start this summer in Shreveport, LA. So if you’re int he area, stop by, and tell Jason how awesome he is.
Wow. Just, wow. It doesn’t matter what the movie’s about – or what any of his movies are about, actually. As long as he still looks like *that*, and punches dudes in the face a lot, I will still buy tickets.
