Remake of 

The Mechanic (1972)
This is a reimagining of the Charles Bronson film.

References 

Fight Club (1999)
Bishop takes the wallet from a guy that thinks he's about to get killed. Bishop reads his name off the driver's license and says: This is your lucky night, Raymond. The almost exact same scene is featured in Fight Club when Tyler Durden does the same.
Inception (2010)
SPOILER: When Arthur (Jason Statham) first receives the contract to kill Harry, he calls a number in response to the 'Ad'. The operator on the other line greets him with "Cobol Engineering". The company name is the same as used in the movie Inception (2010), wherein it hires Cobb and Arthur to extract information from Saito's mind.
