Jason Statham to Star in The Feather Men - Sorta

#1
Empire Magazine amongst others have just annonuced that The Stath will be starring in a film based on The Feather Men by Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

The only scary thing is the blurg says he'll be playing an ex-Navy Seal but British SF 8O

This is going to go one of two ways...

So The Killer Elite, are you going to watch it when it graces our screens/shelves?

I would watch the test card if he was in it!!! :hump:
Whilst I am glad that Mr Statham (and Bruce Willis) made shaved/balding socially acceptable for white guys... as I am amongst the follically challanged myself..... I dont really rate his acting ability.

As an 'action star' he is great... just as long as he doesnt get too many complex lines. (And before anyone brings Lock Stock/Snatch up, the 'mockney gangster' role is one he has mastered, I am aware of that).

Jason Statham is good at the mockney blah blah roles....

But can he do Ffiennes?

How about Hugh "floppy fringe" Grant with Jason doing the voice over?

Much like Dave "Green Cross Code" Prowse was dubbed by James Earl Jones as Darth Vader.

He has all the acting ability of a wind sock.

However, the minge seem to hang off his every word and if I'm not mistaken didn't he get amongst Kelly Brook.
The Strath did, indeed, bash the devine Ms Brook's back doors in. :drool:

We are not worthy! :worship:

Potential B Movie with bone "stars". Isn't Statham one of those fick Bouncer types from the er, Ritchie stable? Oh dear. As opposed to the articulate professional with class... Bet the old Boy author is really pleased 8O
Straight to DVD then...

That's very interesting... but if you follow the quotes, I was replying to Werewolf, who had referred to Carlton Hill

:p

Ran? A mark one cnut :twisted: He could salvage his reputation with me by donating his proceeds from this film to Combat Stress and H4H.

'The Feathermen' is ridiculous enough as a piece of fiction, but to sell it as real was outrageous, particularly as it is partly populated with real peeps.

Fiction = fiction

Non-fiction = Non-fiction

The problem with a large number of books featuring the SAS is that the clear line above is not respected.

I am from Edinburgh but, in my defence, have never been up CALTON Hill. It's reputation proceeds it. :wink:

I agree with Mr Lomas , book was shi te, and made the author no freinds at all. Complete fantasy
Tried to read it years ago; got halfway through and then binned it. :roll:

Am I right in saying there is a scene in the book where an SAS officer is drugged and left to die of exposure while re-taking Selection? I thought that was in rather poor taste, since it was obviously based on a real officer who died on the Hills.
