Special Features: Original Sin – Las Vegas and the Characters of Wild Card / The Script / The Stunts

It’s been a while since we’ve seen William Goldman‘s name on a script. The now-legendary writer brought us Marathon Man and All The President’s Men, before going on to write industry bible Adventures In The Screen Trade and fantasy classic The Princess Bride. Now he’s back with Wild Card, an adaptation of his novel Heat. It’s an Elmore Leonard-style tapestry of world weary characters seeking vengeance or enlightenment in the neon jungle of Las Vegas. You could easily see an actor-director combo like Clint Eastwood and Don Siegel taking on the material – though of course the book was published in the Eighties,

Wild Card Review

Jason Statham is one of the most magnetic action stars of his generation, although you wouldn’t know it from the middling to mediocre line-up of moderate-budgeted releases he has headlined over the last decade. The actor’s steely cool and casual intensity is often the best part of fleeting, forgettable genre films. However, if given a meatier character or some prime dialogue to chew on, Statham shows a drive, confidence and vulnerability that his other vehicles only hint at.

It turns out that Statham needed a refreshingly low-key slice of old-school noir from veteran screenwriter William Goldman, of All the President’s Men and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid fame. Wild Card is certainly not a classic near the pantheon of those films, but it is above average for a high voltage flick with Statham’s name above the marquee. Goldman adapted the lurid thriller from his novel,

The Chips Are Down For Jason Statham In New Poster For Action Flick Wild Card

Given the cult status of The Mechanic, it’s no wonder that it has only taken four years for director Simon West to reunite with his no-nonsense star Jason Statham for another bout of high-octane action. Only this time around, the filmmaker is shifting the action to Sin City for Wild Card, which will see the Stath step into the shoes of an ex-marine with an uncontrollable penchant for gambling.

With a script from William Goldman — creative mind behind Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and The Princess Bride – there’s certainly an air of promise with the pair’s latest outing. Centering around Nick Wild (Statham), Wild Card will see our protagonist get in deep with the sharks when he steps up to protect a friend, only to find that he has gotten on the wrong side of some of the most ruthless mob bosses in town.

Film Review: ‘Wild Card’

Film Review: ‘Wild Card’
To pinpoint the appeal of British B-movie bruiser Jason Statham, one need look no further than the place where the ball of Statham’s foot, the crown of his head, or the bend of his elbow makes sudden, bone-shattering contact with some lesser specimen of the human gene pool. Such collisions, alas, are too few and far between in “Wild Card,” a serviceable Vegas neo-noir that carries an unusually tony pedigree for a Statham vehicle (in the form of Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman), but lacks the amped-up Looney Tunes mayhem of the “Transporter” and “Crank” franchises. Lionsgate is wisely betting low on this Jan. 30 release, with a limited theatrical run and a more aggressive VOD push.

Wild Card” represents the second attempt by Goldman (“All the President’s Men,” “The Princess Bride”) and producer Cassian Elwes to fashion a movie from the writer’s 1985 paperback potboiler, “Heat,” about the various entanglements of one Nick Escalante,

Watch: Jason Statham Gambles With Danger In U.S. Trailer For 'Wild Card'

Hey, your bi-annual (or so) dose of Jason Statham is just around the corner! We just saw the actor in "The Expendables 3" a few months ago, and next summer he'll be back for a double whammy of "Furious 7" and "Spy." But beforehand, he's hitting the tables in "Wild Card," and  the U.S. version of the trailer has dropped today.  Based on a book by that name, a remake of a 1986 Burt Reynolds movie no one remembers, directed by Simon West (forever chasing career high "Con Air"), and featuring a pretty eclectic cast including Michael Angarano (killing it on "The Knick"), Milo Ventimiglia, Dominik García-Lorido, Anne Heche, Sofia Vergara, Jason Alexander (Costanza!), Hope Davis and Stanley Tucci (the latter two deserving so much better), the movie is your basic Statham-cracks-skulls action thingy.

New Wild Card Trailer a Vast Improvement; Looks Like Jason Statham’s Best Movie In Years

I like Jason Statham. I especially like him in other people's movies because, as a rule, the sub-genre that's basically come to be known as "Jason Statham movies" isn't really my thing. I get the appeal, it's just not for me. But Wild Card (while still not exactly in my wheelhouse) looks like it has more personality than your standard Statham fare. For one, it's got a better cast. And, with a script by the legendary William Goldman (who, to be fair, had seen better years prior to writing Dreamcatcher with Lawrence Kasdan), it looks like it has a lot more personality than some of his other films. This new trailer is also light years better than the international one released a few weeks ago. Hit the jump to check out the Wild Card trailer. The film, directed by Simon West, also stars Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia, Dominik García-Lorido, Anne Heche,
