"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.
