Action superstar Jason Statham (The Beekeeper) is set to star in the action thriller Mutiny directed by Jean François Richet (Plane).

In Mutiny, after his billionaire industrialist boss is murdered in front of him, Cole Reed (Statham) is set up to take the fall for the crime— leaving him on the run as he works to uncover an international conspiracy.

Based on a script by Lindsay Michel and J.P. Davis (PlaneThe Contractor), the film is produced by Statham and his newly minted production company Punch Palace Productions and Marc Butan under his MadRiver Pictures banner.

“Jason Statham is one of the most kinetic action stars in the world and we look forward to teaming him up with Jean-François and the MadRiver team who we previously worked with on Plane. We can’t wait to see that creative energy once again as we bring Mutiny to life,” said Lauren Bixby, SVP, Co-Productions and Acquisitions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group.

Principal photography is set to begin this September in the UK.
