British distributors Entertainment One have sent us a new trailer and poster for director Taylor Hackford's crime thriller Parker (2013), starring Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez and Michael Chiklis. The film is set to open in theaters across the United Kingdom On March 8th.
Parker (Statham), is a hardened professional criminal who will do whatever it takes to get what he wants, living by his own code of ethics - don't steal from people who can't afford it and don't hurt people who don't deserve it. But when he's double-crossed by his crew and left for dead, it's time for payback. Assuming a disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a sexy local Palm Beach resident (Lopez), he tracks down the gang, aiming to take everyone out and hijack the score of their latest heist. Directed by the Oscar-winning filmmaker Taylor Hackford (Ray) and based on the novel 'Flash Fire' by Richard Stark.
Im not sure, but im interested enough to give this a go. Taylor Hackford has a spotty record, and J-Lo has made one iconic film (Out of Sight). But I would go and watch this. Donald Westlake has been sorely underexposed.
