You can firmly place this one in the stack of 'sequels we didn't know we were getting this year'. Yes, Jason Statham is returning as Arthur Bishop in Mechanic: Resurrection. It is a follow-up to the 2011 remake The Mechanic. Today, Summit Entertainment has released a first look photo at the sequel's leading man and his new lady, played by Jessica Alba. And it promises to be one cool treat in the very hot dog days of summer.
In Resurrection, Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) returns as the Mechanic when someone from his past forces him back into the business. Bishop has to complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world, or he faces being executed himself. The movie was shot on location in Bangkok, Thailand.
