  1. “The Mechanic” is one of my favs as well. Based on other “remakes” I’ve loathed I’d say the ways they can screw it up would be

    1. Make the Statham character work for the CIA/government and thereby inject politics into it.

    2.Someone pitched a C+ script about a couple of assassins and some suit decided to change a couple of character names and call it a remake of the Mechanic, thereby promoting it’s calculated commercial value into the “go ahead and produce it” range.

    I’m already suspicious as the Ben Foster character doesn’t look like a young, amoral and ambitious understudy in the trailer.

  2. Another problem is that there is not one single working actor out there with 1/10th of the real, in-your-gut toughness of Bronson.
