Michael Chiklis To Play “Parker” Villain

“The Shield” star Michael Chiklis is set to play Jason Statham’s nemesis in Taylor Hackford’s thriller “Parker” for FilmDistrict says Deadline

Based on the novel series by Donald Westlake, the story revolves around a thief who lives by a code of honor that includes never stealing money from people who need it.

His word is his bond, and if he is crossed he will strike back relentlessly and has no hesitancy about taking a life if needs be. John J. McLaughlin (“Black Swan”) adapted the script.

Jennifer Lopez is in talks to play the female lead and shooting begins in August in New Orleans.
