The action-packed video gives a preview to Ben Foster who is recruited to become an apprentice by Jason Statham's assassin character.

The first look at action movie "" has been made available for viewing pleasure through a brand new promo trailer. While the first half of the snippet gives a preview to who trains in fighting skills, the rest of the video contains a lot of action scenes. A glimpse of raunchy footage is also featured in this snippet.

"The Mechanic" centers its story on Foster's Steve McKenna, a young man who becomes an apprentice to a hitman portrayed by Statham. This remake of 1972 movie with the same title picks up the idea of a spy thriller in a post 9/11 world.

Directed by Simon West, this action drama still has no U.S. release date as no studio has bought the distribution rights for the movie. Karl Gajdusek provides the screenplay for "The Mechanic", while Robert Chartoff joins forces with Rob Cowan, Marcy Drogin, Irwin Winkler and John Thompson to produce it.
