Jason Statham in Talks to Play Nick Stone in "Echelon"

Posted: February 10th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jason Statham in Talks to Play Nick Stone in "Echelon"Submit Comment
Almost a year ago, it was announced that Hyde Park Entertainment has picked up the rights to Andy McNab's 13-part espionage novel series based around the character Nick Stone.

Then a few months later came news that Eric Bana (The Hulk) was offered the lead role. The actor apparently passed because Deadline is now reporting that Jason Statham is circling the role, but hasn't been signed yet.

The name of the film is "Echelon" and it is based on the third novel in the series, called "Firewall." The story follows a SAS soldier as he attempts to prevent a terrorist organization from accessing the world’s largest computer intelligence database.

Stunt coordinator Simon Crane (The Tourist, Salt) will make his feature directing debut.

Statham is the new Stallone. Now let's put him in some scifi and make him the new Schwarzenegger.

Statham = bad idea.

But that would make sense, seeing as how Statham has no acting ability and is completely one dimensional.

Newtons -

Eastwood is a boring director and Statham has no acting ability and is completely one dimensional and a bad idea for the role of Nick Stone.

With all respect I couldn't disagree with you more on both counts.

Statham is an Action star and a bloody good one at that. He needs to be able to shoot a gun, blow sh*t up, deliver a one liner and kick someone’s ass.

All he does with the greatest of ease.

As the Great Clint Once said "Man's got to know his limitations"

Statham does and like Mink already said he doesn't mind being typed casted that way.

On Eastwood we've spoke about him already.
