"I'm not violent, I'm just good at it." Formerly known as Heat, the latest film from The Mechanic and Expendables 2 director Simon West is now going by the title Wild Card. The film is actually a remake of the 1987 film starring Burt Reynolds, and this time it's Jason Statham in the lead role as Nick Wild (yes, the title is a stupid pun). This time, Statham is an ex-marine and a gambling addict, and of course he just wants to be left alone to start a new life in Las Vegas. But as is the case with all these movies, trouble finds him. Be prepared to laugh at how bad this looks in this French trailer, with some terrible dialogue. Watch!
Here's the French trailer for Simon West's Wild Card (via The Film Stage):
Here's the poster for the film's release in the United Kingdom and a first look photo too:
Wild Card is directed by Simon West (The Expendables 2, Con-Air, The Mechanic) and written by William Goldman, based on his own novel Heat. Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss (Milo Ventimiglia). Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortune and this time, it’s all or nothing. Stanley Tucci, Sofía Vergara, Michael Angarano and Anne Heche also star in the film arriving on January 30th, 2015. Well?

Oh dear Jason Statham, please, don't beat me, I'm a good girl, please... As for the boys, fuck them, they deserve to end up with broken necks and other broken limbs... Fuck, yeah...

He was gone for awhile, but now he is back. 2015 needs more Statham.

While Ethan concerns himself with dialogue I'll be looking forward to seeing another Statham movie. It never gets old watching the man break bones! Simon West as the director is also a good thing.
