In this new clip from Taylor Hackford’s Parker, Jason Statham needs to know something about Jennifer Lopez that he can only find out if she’s naked. Okay.
I’m starting to think The Stath is a much better actor than he’s been given credit for. (You know it matters not to me) since he’s able to keep a straight face during la Lopez’s waif routine. In any case, as we’ve been reporting, Parker is based on a character created by Donald E. Westlake. The film features a script by John J. McLaughlin (Hitchcock, Black Swan).
“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.”
The film also stars Nick Nolte, Michael Chiklis, Clifton Collins, Jr. and Wendell Pierce. It opens in the US and the UK on January 25.
You know I’ll be there. Will you? Watch the clip below and feel free to leave us your thoughts on these two.
