Jason Statham’s Safe To Release On 4 May
Director Boaz Yakin’s action film, Safe, starring Jason Statham, will release in India on 4 May 2012 by Reliance Entertainment.
Jason Statham, who has starred in action-packed films like The Transporter series, The Italian Job and The Expendables, plays a much more vulnerable character than he usually plays, says director Yakin.
The film also stars Catherine Chan and Chris Sarandon. Statham plays Luke Wright, a former NYPD cop cum second-rate cage fighter whose wife has been murdered and his life destroyed by the Russian mob. With nothing to live for, Luke begins contemplating suicide. But his unlikely savior is a ten-year-old Chinese math prodigy named Mei. Kidnapped by Triad boss Han Jiao for her flawless numerical memory, Mei has been brought to America and forced to act as the organization’s “human ledger”. But the information Mei holds in her memory is also coveted by the Russian mob, and a botched abduction attempt sends her on the run…and right into Luke’s path. He tries to protect Mei from the Triads while outwitting New York officials and the Russian Mafia. He won’t stop until she’s safe. SAFE’s vivid central relationship between Luke and Mei is the driving force of the film.
