Jason Statham is readying to star in a new thriller that begins filming in the UK next week (w/c 8 April), directed by David Ayer.

Adapted by Sylvester Stallone from the Levon Cade books by Chuck Dixon, the feature centres on Cade (played by Statham), a legendary figure in the world of black ops whose attempts to go straight with a new career in construction are derailed when he is drawn into the hunt for a missing college student.

The film is based on the first of eleven books in the Levon Cade series, leaving plenty of source material for a vigilante action franchise.

Black Bear and BlockFilm produce alongside Balboa Productions (Stallone’s prodco), Punch Palace Productions (Statham’s company) and Cedar Park Entertainment (Ayer).

Production Intelligence subscribers have had access to details on the exact prep and shoot dates, key UK HoDs and the UK studio being used.
