Parker (2013) (5/21) Full Press Release


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 Palm Beach, 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.

Based on the novel Flashfire by Richard Stark and directed by Taylor Hackford, PARKER has a screenplay by John J. McLaughlin. The film was produced by Taylor Hackford, Les Alexander, Jonathan Mitchell, Steve Chasman, Sidney Kimmel and Matthew Rowland and executive produced by Peter Schlessel, Brad Luff, Stratton Leopold, Bruce Toll, Nick Meyer, Marc Schaberg and Clint Kisker.

The Parker Blu-ray and DVD both come with a director's commentary from Academy Award-winner Taylor Hackford (An Officer and a Gentleman, Ray) and two behind the scenes features: "Bring the Hunter to Life: The Making of Parker," and "Who is Parker?" which introduces the character to new audiences. The Parker Blu-ray will include two exclusive special features: "The Origin of Parker," about the anti-hero's psychology in the novels, and "Broken Necks and Bloody Knuckles," which details the fight choreography performed by Jason Statham and Parker's stuntmen.
