Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez and Disguises in the Trailer for 'Parker'
It's been awhile since Jennifer Lopez took a dive into action, so who better to team up with than Jason Statham? Let's be honest, there's a certain kind of film we've come to expect from Statham (The Bank Job being pretty much the only exception to the rule), and this first trailer for Parker certainly fits the bill. Sure it's silly, but there's plenty of action, and this time Statham throws on some (terrible) disguises. Plus Michael Chiklis and Nick Nolte are in the mix this time around, so that should make for a little bit of fun when the film hits theaters early next year. It doesn't look good, but it just looks like a Statham movie.
Here's the first full trailer for Taylor Hackford's Parker, originally from Machinima:
Taylor Hackford (Ray, Proof of Life) directs Parker from a script by John J. McLaughlin based on Donald E. Westlake's novels featuring the titular recurring character. Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don't steal from people who can't afford it and don't hurt people who don't deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead. Disguised as a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez) to devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean. The film hits theaters January 25th, 2013.
