Jason Statham Takes Over for Daniel Craig in "Layer Cake" Sequel

Posted: November 12th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jason Statham Takes Over for Daniel Craig in "Layer Cake" SequelSubmit Comment
Back in 2004, director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) brought JJ Connolly's 2000 novel "Layer Cake" to the big screen with Daniel Craig (Skyfall) playing the lead role. Now comes word that Connolly's 2011 sequel novel, "Viva La Madness" is also being adapted, this time with Jason Statham playing the same role.

In the new movie, the nameless character (Statham) is looking to retire on a beach, but instead gets involved with trans-Atlantic drug deals, money laundering, high-tech electronic fraud, London low-lifes and Venezuelan drug cartels.

Statham acquired the rights to "Viva La Madness" and will produce. And just like with "Layer Cake," Connolly will once again provide the screenplay.

Daniel Craig gave an excellent performance as an actor in The Layer Cake so I doubt Jason Statham will show something similar in the sequel.

He should stick for what he does best: kicking asses.

Statham is as good as what his writers give him. He was really good in " Redemption aka Hummingbird". Since Layer Cake was pretty great, maybe he will shine. Ill go see it.

Actually, this sounds like good news since the original film was well-acted and directed but boring as f*ck.
