Grabbers Nabs Jason Statham

“The Transporter” and “Crank” star Jason Statham tells Empire Online that his next film will be a project currently titled “The Grabbers”.

Describing it as in the vein of the Bogart classic “The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre”, it deals with “relationships and how greed contaminates the relationships these three people have.”

Statham of course plays a “crazy Brit that is quite charismatic” and David and Janet Peoples (“Twelve Monkeys,” “Unforgiven”) have penned the script.

Of course its early days yet and the project may not happen – “Hopefully we’ll get that made. We’re trying to put the finance together now and hopefully do it before the end of the year.”
