Jason Statham to Teach Ben Foster the Killing Trade in Mechanic Remake

4 Comments

Jason Statham as a professional hired killer who always gets the job done isn’t much of a stretch, but Ben Foster as the young buck who learns from the pro will be grand. Especially if you’ve seen “3:10 to Yuma” and has seen the original “The Mechanic”, then you know Foster is going to kill in all kinds of ways in this role.

The latest news on “The Mechanic” remake, which is set to star Statham in the Charles Bronson role, is that Foster will be playing a character name Steve McKenna (originally played by Jan-Michael Vincent), who becomes an apprentice to Statham’s seasoned hitman. Also joining the cast is Donald Sutherland, who will be playing Statham’s handler and McKenna’s father, Big Harry.

Simon West (“Con Air”) will direct the remake, which is set to shoot on location in New Orleans in the coming weeks.

Buckle up, Stath, here I a'comin'!
