Apparently Simon West is a fan of Jason Statham’s.  When news broken last week about Statham starring in the remake of The Mechanic, Simon West immediately said he was interested.

Variety has confirmed that West is now attached to direct The Mechanic.

Shooting is set to start this summer, in Shreveport LA.

Simon West’s resume includes Con Air, which many people fault for Nic Cage’s complete ridicuousness.  I, however, enjoy it, being the John Cusack fan that I am.

West has also helmed When A Stranger Calls, The General’s Daughter, and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

The Mechanic is scheduled for release on December 10th, 2010.

That one’s for you, ladies.  Since I’ve been adding images to all the posts for today, I thought I’d give you ladies some eye candy.  Tell your friends.

Next to Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Statham may be the baddest son of a bitch alive.

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.
