THE BEEKEEPER: Cameras Roll On The New Jason Statham Action Thriller
KFTV has word that production in London has begun on The Beekeeper, from director David Ayer (Bright, Sabotage) and starring Jason Statham (Fast And Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw). The film marks a reunion for the action star with MGM following their previous involvement on Guy Ritchie revenge thriller, Wrath Of Man, with the company acquiring the film for U.S. distribution as of late last month.
Ayer directs the film from a script by Kurt Wimmer, which “centres on one man’s campaign for vengeance – a quest that has very high stakes as he is revealed to have been associated with a secretive and powerful organisation known as ‘The Beekeepers’. Pic hails from Ayer’s Cedar Park Entertainment whose Chris Long is producing next to Miramax’s Bill Block, and with Statham also producing.
