The Killer Elite trailer

Release date: September 23, 2011

Directed by Gary McKendry and starring Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Robert De Niro, Dominic Purcell and Ben Mendelsohn. Simon Duggam ( I,Robot, Knowing ) provided the cinematography.

Premise: The film is an adaptation of the Sir Ranulph Fiennes' novel The Featherman and not a remake of the James Caan, Robert Duvall crime film from 1975. The book controversially claimed to have been based on actual events, concerns a series of assassinations of members of the British Special Air Service (SAS) by a hit squad called "The Clinic". The "Feather Men" of the title is a group of vigilante special forces members who take on the hit men to protect members of their regiment.

The film was shot in over 10 different locations in Australia and some locations in Wales, UK.

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 !
