UPDATE: Sony Pictures has found Jason Statham’s replacement in Woody Harrelson (Zombieland 2, Venom 2). Harrelson steps in just in time as production is set to roll in a few weeks with a release date set for November 20, 2020.


UPDATE: Jason Statham has exited the project due to creative differences. It is reported that Statham wanted the film to be R-rated while the studio wants to stick with a more family friendly PG-13 rating for the Thanksgiving holiday season.

A search for a replacement is underway as production is set to start in 6 weeks.
