Jason Statham To Star In Layer Cake Sequel

The Transporter star will replace Daniel Craig in the follow up, Viva La Madness.

Jason Statham and his manager/producing partner Steve Chasman have picked up the rights to J.J. Connolly‘s book Viva La Madness, the follow-up to Layer Cake. With Daniel Craig busy playing James Bond, Statham will take on the role of the same un-named character from the original.

The plot ‘Viva La Madness’ follows on from Layer Cake with the un-named protagonist having recovered from (uh, spoiler alert) the gunshot wound he got at the end of the first film, he decides to retire to a beach. But he gets involved in a high-speed plot involving international drug deals, money laundering, fraud, and all sorts of vicious, dangerous characters.

Statham is a man in demand at the moment, he’ll appear next year in Fast & Furious 7, The Expendables 3, and the Heat remake. He also recently signed on to star with Melissa McCarthy in Paul Feig’s spy comedy Susan Cooper.
