Jason Statham is in negotiations to join Taylor Hackford’s new noir/action thriller “Parker” for Sierra/Affinity, Incentive Filmed Entertainment and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment reports Variety.
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.
Hackford, Steven Chasman, Les Alexander, Sidney Kimmel and Jonathan Mitchell will produce.
