Jason Statham Does Burt Reynolds

Burt Reynolds Heat Poster
Can the man still be the man without the hair?
From our good friends over at Deadline, more news about the busiest man in show business:

Jason Statham will star in Heat, a remake of the 1987 Burt Reynolds film that Brian De Palma will direct from a script by the great scribe William Goldman. Goldman [sic] who wrote the original script from his novel. Statham plays the recovering gambling addict who makes his living providing protection on the rough edges of the gambling world. When a female friend is beaten by a high-rolling mobster, the enforcer kicks some ass and gets in over his head.

We have a weakness for all those old Burt Reynolds films (Smokey and the Bandit, anyone?). Though not sure how well this one will translate, we’re willing to give it a shot.
