Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson projects going to Lionsgate

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Lionsgate is filling its slate with a trio of titles that it will distribute in partnership with IM Global, and we are starting to get a few more details about each project, thanks to Variety.

Jason Statham will headline “Safe,” which is currently in production. Written and directed by Boaz Yakin, the film co-stars Danni Lang, James Colby and Tim Carr. There’s no release date right now.

Meanwhile, Simon West’s “Protection” will go into production in March, with a New Mexico shoot. Dwayne Johnson will star in the action thriller, which casts the former wrestler as a disgraced former American Special Forces operative who must rescue a judge’s kidnapped daughter from a Mexican cartel, according to IMDb.

But the most anticipated title in the bunch has to be “Dredd,” a retry of the graphic novel that once was adapted into a Stallone vehicle. This new one stars Karl Urban (“Star Trek,” “Red”) and Olivia Thirlby (“Juno”), and will be directed in 3D by Pete Travis. It begins production on Nov. 12 in Cape Town, South Africa.

We’ll follow each project and report back new details as they surface.
