by at . Comments

Jason Statham sure has amassed quite a fan following since he debuted on screens in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The action star is back with what he hopes is a new franchise that is shown off in the latest Parker trailer. The film, based on the book series by Donald E. Westlake, features its titular character as a criminal who only "steals from people who can afford it and only hurts people who deserve it." You know, he's a hood with a moral compass! Sounds like a perfect role for Statham.
