Ben Foster (‘’3:10 to Yuma”) and Donald Sutherland (Guy who stresses anyone who enters his house take off their clothes first, as not to bring in germs from ‘outside’) will join Jason Statham in a remake of the Charles Bronson classic, ‘’The Mechanic’’, according to Variety.

The film is being helmed by Simon West and is set to go into production in the coming weeks in New Orleans.

In the pic, Foster will play Steve McKenna, the young man who becomes an apprentice to a hitman played by Jason Statham. Sutherland will play the role of Foster’s father and Statham’s handler.

Speaking of remakes of old Charles Bronson flicks, Sly Stallone tells Empire Magazine that he’s still toying with the idea of redoing ‘’Death Wish’’.

“I’m thinking about it,” Stallone told us. “It’s a classic morality tale, where you take a civilised man and take away everything that matters to him so he becomes primitive again.”

Stallone says he’s waiting for the criticism to begin. ‘’The trouble with remakes is that people fall in love with the original. It’s like peanut butter. If you try to change the taste of peanut butter, you’re in trouble.”
