looks set to be a new kind of Jason Statham vehicle, and we’ve got an exclusive first look at the quad poster.
The film is the directorial feature debut of Steven Knight, who made his name as a screenwriter with
Dirty Pretty Things
The Stath gets to exhibit a softer side as Joey Jones (we didn’t just make that name up, promise), an ex-special forces soldier on the run from a court martial. Bearded, bedraggled and homeless, he finds solace in his friendship with a young nun after assuming another man’s identity.
And it's not long before he finds himself drawn back onto a violent path, cracking the heads of those who’ve wronged his new-found love.
The quad poster feature Statham (looking distinctly un-homeless in dinner suit and casually slung bowtie) treading London’s neon-tinged streets.
