Parker, a novel character created by writer Richard Stark/Donald Westlake will be getting another film adaptation. This time, it has The Transporter portraying the career thief.

Jason Statham is set to play the titular role. And his villainous counterpart is fellow baldy Michael Chiklis (The Shield). The film is being directed by Taylor Hackford (Ray, Against All Odds). The film has Clifton Collins Jr., Wendell Pierce (The Wire) and Jennifer Lopez lined up for different roles. The script is reportedly based on different elements of Westlake’s Parker novels.

Here is a fine fact. Statham is the first actor to Portray Parker using his novel namesake. Lee Marvin, Peter Coyote, Jim Brown and Robert Duvall played Parker variations in different movies. Mel Gibson was the last actor using the name Porter to portray the character in the film Payback.
