Interview: The Mechanic stars Jason Statham and Ben Foster!
Explosions, gunshots, and more than a few chokings; Simon West’s THE MECHANIC is a new take on the original ‘72 film starring Charles Bronson. When Arthur Bishop , a man whose job it is to make people die in ways that look conveniently accidental, finds out that his mentor has betrayed his organization, it’s up to him to even the score. But before Bishop knows what’s up or down, he finds himself the reluctant tutor to his mentor’s son, Steve, who can never know the truth.
Now we know that being an assassin can be very badass, but what’s it like for the actors who have to pull off difficult stunts and dangerous falls? I asked stars Jason Statham (Bishop) and Ben Foster (Steve) those questions and more, including what brought them on to this killer project to begin with?
