Upcoming Movie - Killer Elite

Friday, 24 June 2011

Trust me when I tell you that their is nothing decent coming out at the movie theatres this weekend so we will go with this and Upcoming movie trailer which looks awesome, hope you agree.

I ran by this movie today and thought it was best to get something up here about it.  The Killer Elite is due out September 21st 2011 (USA) and looks like it is going to be a really good movie backed up with a pretty impressive cast.  Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Robert De Niro, there you have the main characters, this movie should not be confused with the 1975 version of the killer elite which starred James Caan and Robert Duvall, the story's are different and there is no link at all that I can see.
The movie is based on the book "The Feather Men" written by Sir Ranulph Fiennes which claimed to be based on actual events regarding the assassinations of members of the British Special Air Service (SAS) carried out by a group or hit squad called The Clinic.  The story sees retired member of the elite come back to protect their former comrades.

Jason Statham takes the lead role playing Danny Bryce a retired SAS veteran who joins his former team to help hunt down the Clinic.

Filming The Killer Elite
The movie has mainly been shot over in Australia, with all of Robert De Niro scenes being taken there, he does not play a major role in the movie joining the cast for only 10 days to play the part of an assassin, also set to star in the movie is Dominic Purcell (Prison Break and Blade Trinity).  It's not really clear what part Purcell will play in the movie but being English I would imagine he is a comrade of Statham.

Dom Purcell will star in Killer Elite

Statham has been filming in the Welsh Brecon Beacons for his part in the movie.  It has been one of the main film locations due to the fact that the real SAS train their.  On a budget of $66 million this movie definitely looks like it will be worth a couple of hours of our time, check out the trailer below.
