He’s immersing himself in ‘Jersey Shore’ reruns in preparation.
The characters take it all seriously, but the story just goes wildly over the top for the sake of creating awesome set pieces.
There’s a good chance you’re wavering on whether or not to go see The Mechanic. It’s just Jason Statham with a gun after all, a sight you’ve seen so many times now you’re beginning to wonder why he doesn’t just get a damn glock surgically affixed to his arm.
Ben Foster, last seen blowing up all manner of things in this month’s The Mechanic, has been added to the cast of Fernando Meirelles’ slightly more highbrow film ’360′.
Ben Foster and Giovanni Ribisi are close to joining the cast of Contraband, Variety is reporting. If the deal goes through, the pair will join Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale, who have already been cast in the thriller.
In the film, Statham plays a mechanic, but not the kind of mechanic that fixes cars and stuff. He’s the kind that fixes people’s heads…with bullets.
The trailer for The Mechanic has all the hallmarks of a Jason Statham film — cars, guns, explosions, unintelligle growl-mumbles, and the Cowgirl Position. A remake of the 1972 original, Statham steps into the Charles Bronson role. Except in this version, women aren't disgusted by the thought of touching the lead actor. Ben Foster co-stars as his ward in the killing people for money game, which appears to be an industry where you don't want the other guy knowing your trade secrets. Much like blogging (nothing like blogging). The film opens December 15th and also stars Donald Sutherland and Christa Campbell, who you more than likely know from the very important film, Cool Dog.
