According to Deadline, Jason Statham is set to star in his first television role in “Viva La Madness,” originally a film project that has now become an hour-long TV drama series based on J. J. Connolly’s second crime novel of the same name, from Gaumont International TV.

“Viva La Madness” is the sequel to Connolly’s first crime novel “Layer Cake,” which was made into a film in 2004 with Daniel Craig in the starring role. Statham and Steven Chasman own the rights to the project and will executive produce with Connolly attached to writing the series. In “Viva La Madness,” the anonymous hero is stranded in the Caribbean itching for the criminal life he left behind–but he’s still a wanted man back home. Soon he joins forces with two robust London gangsters: the menacing Sonny King and his paranoid partner Roy “Twitchy” Burns.

“The way J. J. writes is so on the ball and authentic it’s hard to let any of it go. Trying to lose characters or shave down scenes every other page didn’t work, we wanted it all. The best place was a 10 hour plus show that lets you fully disappear into Connolly’s world,” Statham said.

“’Viva La Madness,’ with its riveting characters and twisting storyline, is a volatile cocktail of action and comedy that only J. J. Connolly can create,” Katie O’Connell Marsh, CEO for Gaumont International Television, said. “Jason Statham, known for his roles in “The Transporter” trilogy, “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,” “Snatch,” “The Bank Job” as well as the recent “Furious 7” and “Spy,” brings such strength and credibility to his characters but also has an effortless shade of vulnerability that gives him so much dimension on screen.”
