We’ve got three action-heavy posters tonight. First up is Safe, in which Jason Statham plays “a former elite agent who fights to rescue a 12-year-old girl (Catherine Chan).” Next up is Vehicle 19, starring and executive produced by Paul Walker. The new promo poster is accompanied by the first synopsis for the film, which identifies Walker as a recently parolee who gets into trouble with crooked cops when he picks up the wrong rental car. Last up is Machine Gun Preacher, based on the true story of Sam Childers (played by Gerard Butler), “a former drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing transformation and finds an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children.”
Hit the jump for all three posters and more info on each project.
Safe opens on October 28. Chris Sarandon, Robert John Burke, Reggie Lee, and Danny Hoch also star. Boaz Yakin (Death in Love) directed from his own screenplay. Poster via IMP Awards:
There are no details on the supporting cast for Vehicle 19 at this time, but the initial plan was to shoot at the end of this summer in director Mukunda Michael Dewil’s homeland, South Africa. The Film Catalogue, the source of this unfortunately small promo poster, lists the project as “In Production.”
A recently paroled man is given the wrong vehicle at a rental company and stumbles upon key evidence in a corruption trial. After being framed by crooked cops, he must circumvent an entire police force in a city he doesn’t know if he is to clear his name and get the evidence to the prosecution in time.
Machine Gun Preacher will premiere at 2011 Toronto Film Festival prior to release on September 23. Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) directed the $30 million independent production from a script by Jason Keller. Michelle Monaghan and Michael Shannon also star. Poster via IMDB:
