New information has come through for the second in Jason Statham’s ‘Mechanic’ series. The new movie will be called The Mechanic: Resurrection, and see a January 22nd 2016 release date. I thought the first movie was alright, nothing to write home about, but Statham’s stock will probably rise after Furious 7, which probably hasn’t escaped Summit Entertainment’s attention.
The first movie was based on the original 1970s movie starring Charles Bronson and Jan Michael Vincent. It was the better movie, so if you haven’t already seen it, check it out. Here’s the official press release:
MECHANIC: RESURRECTION will open on January 22, 2016 in wide release, from Summit Entertainment.
Cast: Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones, Michelle Yeoh
