Jason Statham says 'Killer Elite' is a ''thinking man's action movie'' and more ''grown up'' than his previous films.
Jason Statham says 'Killer Elite' his one of the most "grown-up" films he has ever worked on.
The 44-year-old actor plays a former special-ops agent trying to save his mentor, who has been kidnapped by a secretive military gang, in the cinematic adventure, which he describes as a "thinking man's action movie".
He said: "This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time. This is a thinking man's action movie. It's a bit more grown-up than things in the past I've done. In order to do movies like this, I have to go through and do a few of those as well. There's a lot more going on."
He added in an interview with MTV News: "The quality of The Script, the quality of the filmmaker - those are two elements that attract living legends like Bob De Niro and Clive Owen. Once I start boxing around with those two, the whole quality of what we're doing changes. It's a big step up."
