British hardman Jason Statham flashes a smile during the filming of Safe

23 October 2010

He's one of the most sought after British talents in film today and has racked up an impressive resume of action roles and starring alongside the likes of action legend Sylvester Stallone and Jet Li. We are, of course talking about Jason Statham.

He was snapped looking dapper on the set of Safe while filming in New York, the film directed by Boaz Yakin and co stars Danni Lang. It is rumoured that Black Dynamite star Michael Jai White will sign to the film. More details on the film will arise now that the film is in production.

Before Safe finds its way to cinemas in 2011, Statham is voicing Tybalt in Gnomeo and Juliet, a Kelly Asbury directed retelling of the classic Romeo and Juliet story with Garden gnomes. Gnomeo (voice of James McAvoy) and Juliet (voice of Emily Blunt) have as many obstacles to overcome as their quasi namesakes when they are caught up in a feud between neighbors. But with plastic pink flamingos and lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find lasting happiness? and will star as Danny Bryce in the Gary McKendry directed The Killer Elite with Clive Owen and sees a former Navy Seal forced out of retirement in order to save his friend.
