The Mechanic remake

The Mechanic original movie from 1972, that was directed by Michael Winner ( The Big Sleep ) and starring Charles Bronson, Jan Michael Vincent and Keenan Wynn, about a hit man and his young protege, is still a cult favorite of mine. Well... as I have scribbled on this site many times before, here is yet another film I like getting a remake; this time with Jason Statham in the Bronson role, Ben Foster ( an actor who I respect ) playing the JMV character with Donald Sutherland playing the role Wynn did previously.
This may be one remake I go see because I like Foster and Sutherland but I know it's will ask a lot to match the original. Out December 15th.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
