A remake of The Mechanic, the 1972 action movie starring Charles Bronson, is under works. The new Mechanic movie is directed by Simon West and is starring Jason Statham in the lead role. It is scheduled for a release on December 15, 2010.
Here below the first official teaser poster of The Mechanic:

I think it won’t be difficult for this new version of The Mechanic to look better than the cheesy 1972 movie.
To get an idea how cheesy the 1972 movie was, just check out this original Mechanic movie trailer:
Yep, I’d rather watch the new Mechanic movie starring Jason Statham than this old junk movie starring Charles Bronson!
