Last we checked, Mickey Rourke, Javier Bardem, and Jason Statham were circling Potsdamer Platz, the new film from Tony Scott.  No word on Statham, but French publication Le Parirsien [via The Playlist] reports that Rourke and Bardem have signed on, accompanied by Christopher Walken and French singer/actor Johnny Hallyday.   The drama centers around “two soldiers in a New Jersey-based crime family who try to expand internationally.”  Don’t get too attached to the German title, as the setting is being shifted from Europe to Puerto Rico, which should inspire a name change.

Scott reportedly pursued Al Pacino and a retired Gene Hackman for roles; as with Statham, it is unclear whether their services are still desired, but it seems likely that one of the roles went to a similarly-aged Walken.  Subsequent to the January shoot of Platz, Rourke and Scott may reunite for the biker biopic Hell’s Angels.
