Jason Statham has carved a very successful niche for himself over the years playing a certain kind of character, and he’s an actor that I’ll always love watching. Parker marks his return to leading man territory, following The Expendables 2 last year, and will soon be hitting US theatres at the end of the month.
We caught the latest trailer just before Christmas, and now its UK quad poster has surfaced online, giving us another look at Statham alongside co-star Jennifer Lopez.
“Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead. Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning their biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider, who’s short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. Together, they devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean.”
Starring alongside them will be Nick Nolte, Michael Chiklis, Sala Baker, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Wendell Pierce.
Taylor Hackford (Ray, The Devil’s Advocate) is behind the camera, directing from a script by John J. McLaughlin (Hitchcock, Black Swan), based on the best-selling series of novels by Donald E. Westlake.
Parker will be released in the US on 25th January, with its UK release date set slightly later on 8th March. For now, here’s the new UK poster, which you can click through to enlarge.
