It seems that that another remake is moving forward with Jason Statham under the hood. According to Production Weekly, Simon West is in negotiations to direct a remake of The Mechanic with Jason Statham to star.

The original 1972 film starred Charles Bronson as a contract killer ready to retire from the game when he takes on a young apprentice, played by Jan-Michael Vincent, when it becomes clear that they were double-crossed and have to survive.

It wasn't clear which studio this new remake was for and we'll surely keep you posted on any developments surrounding this remake.
