He’s currently working on Mechanic Resurrection and spoke to Men’s Health about his workout routine and more interestingly that he wants to work with Furious 7 co-star Tony Jaa on a fully fledged martial arts flick.
He said: “What I’d like to do is a fully-fledged fight movie. I’ve never done one. I met Tony Jaa when I was out in Thailand and to me he’s an inspirational athlete: one of the greatest real-life stunt guys in the business. We talked about doing a proper fight film where we’re on the same team, and we’ve got a script we’re trying to put together.
I’ve never been in a place to do that in the past. I’ve always blamed injuries. But now I know how to fix things. I want to elevate the action in a way that’s never been done before.”
I am 100% down for that and would love to see Statham and Jaa in an old-school martial arts movie.
