First Still Image of Jason Statham in Blitz
09.15.10 by BJSprecher
With one movie currently in theaters, two more completed and awaiting release, and three others in post-production, Jason Statham is easily one of the most in-demand actors working today.
In his latest movie, Blitz, Statham steps away from the shirtless action he has become famous for to play a hard-nosed detective on the hunt for a serial killer in a thriller based on the novel of the same name by Irish crime writer Ken Bruen. Directed by Elliott Lester (Love is the Drug), Blitz is "in the can" and awaiting a release date. The first still image from the movie has been released and, unfortunately, it's a pretty mundane walking-and-talking shot of Statham and co-star Paddy Considine.
Here's the official synopsis of the movie:
The South East London police squad are down and out: Detective Sergeant Brant (Jason Statham) is in hot water for assaulting a police shrink, Chief Inspector Roberts’ wife has died in a horrific car accident, and WPC Falls is still figuring out how to navigate her job as a black female investigator in the notorious unit. When a serial killer takes his show on the road, things get worse for all three. Nicknamed 'The Blitz' by the rabid London media, the killer is aiming for tabloid immortality by killing cops in different beats around the city.
