After The Expendables 3, Jason Statham‘s next movie will be the crime thriller Wild Card, previously known as ‘Heat’. The film will be released November 27th and is directed by The Expendables 2’s Simon West. The film will also be R-rated for strong violence, language and some sexuality/nudity.
Statham will star alongside Milo Ventimiglia and Anne Heche as a recovering gambling addict who takes a job offering protection to his friends. It was written by William Goldman, who wrote the screenplay for the original 1986 movie. Aside from that though, the movie was screened earlier this year and according to (only one) report, it wasn’t a very good movie. Wild Card is another smaller scale movie that will see Statham release such a movie alongside similar efforts in Q4 from Expendables co-stars Arnold Schwarzenegger (Maggie) and Sylvester Stallone (Reach Me).
