Mechanic Sequel Now In The Works

German director Dennis Gansel (“The Wave,” “Before the Fall”) is in talks to direct a sequel to the Jason Statham-led 2011 action thriller “The Mechanic” at Nu Image.

Statham will reprise his role as Arthur Bishop, an elite assassin with a strict code of conduct and a talent for cleanly killing targets.

It is unclear if co-star Ben Foster or any of the first film’s cast will be in the sequel. The first film made just $51 million at the global box-office, but has done big business on video.
