It seems like just when Jason Statham puts a franchise away, he picks up a new one. Statham (The Expendables) may be starting another action franchise after ending his run as ‘Frank Martin’ in ‘The Transporter’ series. The sequel to 2011’s modest hit The Mechanic is already in production & here is the first teaser poster for it.
Statham returns to play Arthur Bishop & seems to have put his murderous past behind him until his most formidable foe kidnaps the love of his life. Now Bishop must travel the globe to complete three impossible assassinations, and do what he does best, make them look like accidents. Joining Statham this time around is Jessica Alba (Machete), Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) & Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black)
Filming location includes many exotic places such as Thailand, Brazil, and Bulgaria. Director Dennis Gansel (The Fourth State) will be taking over for Simon West. The Mechanic: Resurrection is scheduled for a January 16th, 2015 release.
