First Look: Jason Statham in The Bank Job

Jason Statham has quickly become an action movie staple, and almost every new project he shows up in (give or take In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale) is bound to be awesome in some way, at least. He's currently working on a Death Race 3000 remake as well as Crank 2: High Voltage, but in the meantime his next big film for 2008 is a heist movie called The Bank Job. There's one thing that's for sure - every last guy in the world probably loves heist movies as much as the next. And with these new photos and the plot synopsis for The Bank Job, it sounds like this is the heist movie of 2008.

UK's Empire provided the exclusive photos from The Bank Job, and it's a good thing, as this movie is one of the "most British" movies hitting theaters next year. It's set in London, written by two Brits, Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais (they also both wrote Across the Universe and Flushed Away), and stars a handful of Brits, including Statham, the gorgeous Saffron Burrows, Stephen Campbell Moore, and James Faulkner. It is, however, directed by an Australian, Roger Donaldson, of Species, Dante's Peak, Thirteen Days, and The Recruit.

The Bank Job is set in 1971, when thieves tunnelled into the vault of a bank in London's Baker Street and looted safe deposit boxes of cash and jewellery worth over three million pounds. Not one penny was ever recovered and nobody was ever arrested and the story disappeared from headline following a governmental notice gagging the press.
