Clive Owen may help Jason Statham kill a lot of people

03.12.2010

Jason Statham has followed a tried-and-true path to success that involves kicking, punching and shooting nearly everyone in his way. And fellow Brit Clive Owen is no stranger to similar tactics, if with a bit more deliberation and panache.

And it sounds like they'll both be putting their kill-skills to good use in the action flick THE KILLER ELITE. Owen and Statham kicking ass together? That's a tasty rare steak slathered in awesome sauce with a side order of raw knuckles and .45 caliber rounds.

Not a remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1975 flick (which featured James Caan and Robert Duvall), this one is instead based on a book called "The Featherman", about a group of former special forces soldiers being hunted by assassins. Statham is a Navy SEAL coming out of retirement to help his chum in the thriller by commercials director Gary McKendry.

Statham is also currently stepping in as the new Chuck Bronson for a remake of THE MECHANIC.

This sounds wicked!

But I hope they're not gonna force them into American accents, again. I find it very distracting when they do, particularly with Statham.

this is the only Sam Peckinpah remake I will ever approve of, aside from Ostermann Weekend, which I wouldn't see as any sort of remake since it's based on a book.

Sounds exciting

Statham will beat his opponents to a bloody pulp using his frenetic martial arts moves, while Owen bores the bad guys to death with the sound of his monotone voice.

Sounding like a damn good duo, hoping for the best. The Cranks and Shoot 'Em Up rightfully sit next to each other on any shelf.
