Statham’s Untitled Asia Action Project Gets A Title

Posted April 24, 2017 by Lee Golden in News

It’s been a year and a half since we last heard on action star Jason Statham’s prior attachment to a Hong Kong action film project. Given whatever may likely have changed or still may, gladly it still appears to be active by way of Road Pictures’s newly announced production slate according to Screendaily

That report now includes Straw, the title of said thriller currently being scripted by Kurt Wimmer which last had Statham written to play an ex-pat in Hong Kong joined by a female high-level Chinese operative to solve a kidnapping case with global implications. Statham and Chasman are still reportedly producing through their SJ banner with Road also involved.

Production was set for last Fall but should likely advance with the title still in circulation in the news. At any rate, fans still have plenty to look forward to with a forthcoming Fast And Furious spin-off reteaming Statham with Dwayne Johnson, as well as Gaumont International’s serial treatment of Layer Cake author J.J. Connolly’s Viva La Madness, and the August 10, 2018 release of John Turtletaub’s shark thriller, Meg.
