We are thrilled to see that promotion for the sequel is finally kicking off. The official synopsis of the film has also been released which you can read below.
Arthur Bishop [Jason Statham] returns as the Mechanic in the sequel to the 2011 action thriller. When the deceitful actions of a cunning but beautiful woman [Jessica Alba] force him to return to the life he left behind, Bishop’s life is once again in danger as he has to complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world.
While promoting his latest film “Ghostbusters,” director/writer Paul Feig was interviewed by Empire and revealed what we all have been hoping for: Rick Ford will be back.
“That’s another world that I don’t want to walk away from,” Feig tells Empire. “It’s the first thing I did that I set up to be a possible franchise and Melissa is dying to do it. I have a story for it, and a funny idea that will kick it off that involves Statham.”
“Susan Cooper is one of my favourite characters I’ve ever come up with,” continues Feig, “but Rick Ford is possibly the one I’ll take to the grave with me. Will he get any more self-aware in the sequel? No, god no. He’ll get less self-aware.”
We couldn’t be more thrilled that our favorite Brit gets to show once again what a natural he is when it comes to heartfelt comedic scenes.
Our favorite Brit got to try out the new Audi TT RS and ride next to Mattias Ekström in the Audi S1 EKS RX Quattro during the famous sports car endurance race in France. Audi released some great footage of Jason’s action-packed weekend.
