Written by Nathan Parker (“Moon“) and set in London (my favorite city — Jason, you shouldn’t have), “Blitz” follows a serial killer who is targeting police officers. Naturally, the only man who can take him down is Statham, the tough, uncompromising cop who gets the case. I’m sure he’ll follow that grand tradition of loose cannon movie cops who refuse to play by the rules and embrace the occasional ass-kicking.
Paddy Considine (“The Bourne Ultimatum“) will play Statham’s partner. If you’ve seen “Dead Man’s Shoes” you know Considine can give Statham a run for his badass money.
The film begins shooting in London this August, and marks the first collaboration between Statham and Lionsgate U.K since “The Bank Job” in 2008.
Will you be lining up for Jason Statham and “Blitz” with me? Or did Statham lose his goodwill with you after “Death Race 2000″?
