Statham in Britain's biggest bank job

JasonStatham.jpgJason Statham, who I think is a stonking actor, has signed up for a new film which depicts the biggest bank raid in British history where no arrests were made, no money was recovered, and rumours of scandals and secrets in the vault were rife.

It has all the makings of a top class thriller, and it's true. The film will be directed by Roger Donaldson and is called Baker Street, written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais and based on the real heist of the 1971 Baker Street bank robbery.

The story comes from Production Weekly through CinemaBlend.

Previously the film was to be directed by Harold Becker who brought us Mercury Rising, City Hall, Malice and Sea of Love. Donaldson is known for a fair few good films, including The World's Fastest Indian, Thirteen Days, Species and the excellent No Way Out.



This sounds pseudo interesting since Statham is a hit or miss kind of guy judging by his past projects (Snatch vs The Transporter). I think it has potential.

Just to be pedantic for a moment (like I'm never!) I'd say he's not hit and miss, but his film choices are. Whatever he's in he gives a great performance, even if the film isn't that great.
