Hey Jason Statham
fans, are you ready for a huge Hummingbird
update? Sure you are! Especially now when you know that we have 15 new photos
from the upcoming action thriller (upcoming means: still without an official release date, unfortunately) which revolves around Statham’s character – Joey Jones, an ex-special forces soldier turned avenging angel. Angel?
We’ll see about that…
comes from writer & director Steven Knight
, and the whole thing is already being described as an elevated thriller
about a broken man with a battered past, fighting to do what’s right, even if that means breaking his own rules.
As we said, the movie follows Joey Jones
, who finds himself trapped in the criminal underworld, and assumes another man’s identity to exact revenge…
After witnessing his unit ripped to shreds by artillery fire in Afghanistan, Joey Jones has been living on the streets of London, trying to forget his past and stay of out trouble. On the run from a ruthless gang, he breaks into the apartment of a wealthy man in Convent Garden and assumes his upper-class identity. Just as Joey is on his way to making amends with his friend and sponsor Sister Cristina, his pregnant girlfriend is found dead in the river. Now, Joey must use his connections in the Chinese mob to find the man responsible, stopping at nothing until justice is served.
