Naturally, Parker is the latest action/crime-thriller that sees Statham front and centre, and it’s a genre that he’s made a very successful career from in recent years.
The film opened in the US at the end of last month, and will be arriving on our shores at the start of March. And ahead of its release here, we’ve got a new TV spot to share.
“Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead. Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to PalmBeach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning their biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider, who’s short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. Together, they devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean.”
Jennifer Lopez stars opposite Statham in the female lead here, with Nick Nolte, Michael Chiklis, Sala Baker, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Wendell Pierce completing the cast.
Taylor Hackford (Ray, The Devil’s Advocate) is behind the camera, directing from a script by John J. McLaughlin (Hitchcock, Black Swan), based on the best-selling series of novels by Donald E. Westlake.
Parker is currently on wide release in the US, and has its UK release date set for 8th March. For now, here’s the latest TV spot to get you in the mood.
