shocking facts about the Parker Movie:

Cast & Reception

of all, the movie was released back in 2013 and wasn’t received as well as it
is being now. The cast includes Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez. The
supporting cast is equally convincing and includes Wendell Pierce, Clifton
Collins Jr., Bobby Cannavale, Patti LuPone, Nick Nolte, Daniel Bernhardt, Billy
Slaughter, Jon Eyez, and Carl J. Walker and Micah Hauptman.


plot of the movie is definitely its selling point! You will see Jason Statham playing
the role of a thief, but even then he has a strict set of rules to abide by. So
he is a righteous thief who doesn’t steal from innocent and weak people.

soon, his high morals are jeopardized, as he is given a task of performing a
heist with a group of literal savages. This is when he meets Leslie Rodgers who
helps him give it back to the robbers who wrongly used him. The movie is better
when you see it – trust us. The movie is rated R because of strong violent
content and brief nude scenes.

Direction and Concept

movie is directed by Hackford, Alexander, Sidney Kimmel, Steven Chasman and
Jonathan Mitchell. Hackford revealed that he was excited to make this movie, as
it’s his first venture into the noir genre. He wanted to experiment and at the
time he was feeling a bit stuck and uninspired. This movie was a challenge for
him and that is exactly why he decided to take it head on and he did succeed.


producer of the movie, Nick Meyer has revealed that the movie had a budget of
30 million, which is pretty good considering the genre. The movie was filmed in
less than seven weeks and that, too, in New Orleans – a place known to have
halted several productions, if not delayed indefinitely. A section of this film
was also shot in Palm Beach, Florida. This was a fascinating area for the
director who wanted to bring a big budgeted film to a local location.


Statham came into the picture in the April of 2011. About his character in the
movie, Statham said that he’s playing a man who lives by a certain moral code.

“He’s involved in criminal activities but
he perceives all business to be in some way crooked. He never steals from
people who can’t afford it and he doesn’t hurt people that don’t deserve it.”
– He said.

Lopez joined the cast in June as the female lead(the love interest who gets
involved in his business while he’s stuck with the heist).
