Jason Statham will star in The Killer Elite, a $40 million action-thriller that will be directed by Gary McKendry, who is best
known for shooting commercials. The film is based on real-life events concerning a group of former British special force agents who are
hunted by a gaggle of assassins. Statham is playing a former Navy Seal who comes out of retirement in order to save his best friend.
Production on the project begins this fall in locals such as London, Paris, and Australia.
