New Killer Elite Clip Shows Jason Statham Burn Rubber
09.02.11 by Ryan
The upcoming thriller Killer Elite won't open for another few weeks, but at the rate that Open Road Films is releasing preview clips, we may get to watch the entire movie by the time it reaches theaters.
Killer Elite stars Jason Statham as an ex-special ops agent who comes out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro) from a group of assassins led by Clive Owen. With the two clips already released in early August, another action-packed clip debuted earlier this week which showed Statham on the run from Owen and his bullets and, possibly, his disturbing mustache. The latest preview clip again sees Owen chase after Statham, though this time Statham is behind the wheel, and we all know that The Transporter knows how to drive.
Killer Elite is "based on a true story" taken from the 1991 novel The Feather Men by former British Army officer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, though the "truth" of the story has been debated by critics. Newcomer director Gary McKendry helmed the movie, which co-stars Dominic Purcell (Prison Break), Yvonne Strahovski (The Canyon), Aden Young (The Tree) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra).
