Jason Statham and Clive Owen team up for The Killer Elite
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I enjoy Jason Statham’s action movies, but given his turns in more serious fare (LONDON, SNATCH), I think he would do better if he was a little more choosey with his roles. The guy can act and just because he’s great at beating up bad guys, it doesn’t mean he has to do mindless action movies. It looks like he might be taking a turn with the upcoming THE KILLER ELITE in which he’ll play a former Navy Seal that’s tracking down and killing former British Special Agents.
But the exciting thing is that Clive Owen will be playing a senior field operative that’s part of a group that protects former special agents. So it looks like it will be a showdown between two talented actors. Gary McKendry will be directing his first feature film, which is based off the novel ‘The Feather Men’ from Ranulph Fiennes.
