With no news at the moment, we thought it would be a good time to share another rare treasure, thanks to myxenawp. Her dad managed to film over five minutes of Jason Statham shooting a scene for his film “Safe” back in December 2010 in Pennsylvania, and the video is really fantastic. We get to watch our favorite Brit at work and also learn more about the magic of film making that clearly requires a lot of patience and train roof cleaning.
myxenawp: I am VERY happy to reveal this item. I have the BEST Dad ever!!! My Dad was lucky enough to be working in the right place. He called me at home one day and asked me if I knew who Jason Statham was so of course I told him YES!!! So he proceeded to tell me that Jason was shooting a new movie and some of it was being filmed at my Dad’s work. My dad works for Septa which is the public transportation system here in PA and they were using Septa’s trains for their shots when Jason climbs on top of one. Well I couldn’t believe it…what a Lucky Duck!!! My Dad was given a Crew Call Sheet from a stunt guy and it was to the previous location which was filmed in Chinatown. The Stunt guy couldn’t give him the one from my Dad’s work cause they were still in the process of using it but I was thrilled to hear he got one!!! So the next week when Jason was on set my Dad caught him at the right time and asked Jason to sign the sheet for me. Isn’t that the BEST!!! The movie is called Safe and Statham plays an x-elite agent who rescues a little girl from kidnappers and finds himself in the middle of a standoff between Triads, The Russian Mafia and Corrupt New York City Politicians and Police. Looks to be another good one from Jason!! Sweet!!! Can’t wait to see it now!! I added some pics of Jason on set at my Dad’s work and also uploaded 2 videos my Dad shot. Too Cool!!! A BIG Thank You to my Dad. I LOVE YOU!!!! :)
