It’s been a few years since any news was made pertaining to action star and actor Jason Statham’s upcoming television series, Viva La Madness. Fast forward to 2017 and it now appears the show is months away from rolling cameras in the U.K. as one of several programs either in production or in development with streaming giant, Netflix.
Netflix and Sky are behind the new series with Statham producing along with partner Steven Chasman who has produced more than a dozen Statham headliners, including the initial Transporter trilogy, 2015’s Wild Card and last year’s Mechanic: Resurrection. The streaming company is also moving along in the U.K. with eight-part New Pictures drama, The Innocents, as well as a serial prequel of The Dark Crystal and The Outlaw King.
Time will tell how scheduling plays from here on as Statham is also attached to several films that have stirred about in the last few years, including Straw and a currently brewing Fast And Furious spin-off movie in which he’ll join Dwayne Johnson following this year’s The Fate Of The Furious.
