Casting News: Michelle Yeoh and Jessica Alba Join Jason Statham in MECHANIC: RESURRECTION

Am I the only one who kinda forgot about The Mechanic from 2011? It must have gotten lost in the pile of lookalike action films that star Jason Statham because it went right by me. But it must have gone over well because Summit Entertainment is releasing a sequel titled MECHANIC: RESURRECTION. Michelle Yeoh (The Lady, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Jessica Alba (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) have also been added to the project, which is pretty cool news. It's always awesome to see both ladies kicking ass on the big screen (I'm assuming Jones will be there to pout the whole time). Here's a short synopsis:

Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) returns as the Mechanic in the sequel to the 2011 global hit. When someone from his past forces him back into the business, Bishop has to complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world.

MECHANIC: RESURRECTION will open in wide release on January 22, 2016.

And speaking of Tommy Lee Jones, the actor will also star alongside Kevin Costner, Ryan Reynolds, Gary Oldman and Gal Gadot in CRIMINAL, also from Summit Entertainment. The film is being directed by Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) from a script by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg (the writing team behind The Rock and Double Jeopardy. More after the jump:

The memories and skills of a CIA agent are implanted into the brain of a dangerous criminal in order to stop an international terrorist.

CRIMINAL will open wide on August 21, 2015.
