Stunt and fight coordinator Allan Poppleton has shared an awesome new snapshot of our favorite Brit filming the shark-thriller in a massive water tank when the production had moved to China in December 2016. Allan has been working with Jason for over six years, including films such as “Killer Elite,” “Expendables 2,” “Parker” and “Mechanic: Resurrection.”
alpop.stunts: Hope you’ve had a great day @jasonstatham – have had the pleasure and challenge working with Jason over the last 6 1/2 years – from doubling on #killerelite #expendables2 Advising on #parker – Stunt/Fight Coordinating & 2Unit Directing on #mechanicresurrection #megmovie. He’s a top athlete & is always trying to push the envelope and bring something cutting edge to the screen. Thanks for the photo @danielsmithphotography
“Meg” is now in post-production and scheduled to be released on August 10, 2018.
Another fantastic scene took place between our favorite Brit and Helen Mirren who made a surprise appearance on the eighth installment. It really felt as if these two were related in real life, which shows once again what a superb (character) actor Jason is.
We also came across footage which gives you a detailed look at the choreographed fight sequence between Jason and Dwayne Johnson in “Furious 7.”
Since news are slow at the moment, enjoy several wallpapers from “The Fate Of The Furious”.
UPDATE: “Eat Locals” will have its North American premiere at the 2017 Telluride Horror Show in Colorado from October 13-15, 2017.
We have known about this project since last year and are really excited that we can finally write about it and share some photos of our favorite Brit. The bloody vampire horror-comedy was filmed in Hertfordshire, UK from January to February 2016 and reunited Jason not only with Jason Flemyng but also with his two other “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” co-stars Dexter Fletcher and Nick Moran who are both playing roles in the film.
Via Rod Smith (Instagram @pompeyrod): “@eatlocalmovie’s eagle eyed fight director overseeing a key action sequence in the film.” The snapshot was also taken at the Stockers Farm in Rickmansworth, a small town in south-west Hertfordshire, UK.
Written by Danny King, “Eat Locals” also stars Charlie Cox, Freema Agyeman, Mackenzie Crook, Tony Curran, Eve Myles, Vincent Regan and Billy Cook. The film was released in UK cinemas and to rent digitally on September 1, 2017. It will be available on DVD/Blu-ray and Digital HD on October 30, 2017. However, if you live in Germany it is already purchasable.
Jason Statham: “Here is the UNCUT prison escape. Here are the bits that were left on the floor and didn’t quite make it into the movie. Filming this sequence and working across from the big man himself was the best part of making Fast 8. These things exist on the talent of the stunt team and how committed they are to make these things great. JJ Perry gets to direct the chaos and shout at everybody in his one and only way. Respect JJ and the stunt team and a massive respect to the powerhouse and one man army The Rock.”
