In the movie, British actor Statham plays the protagonist Parker, a man out to get revenge on a gang who thought that they had killed him.
In the promotional clip for the motion picture, the character explains that he lives by a strict code: "Never steal from anyone that can't afford it, and never hurt anyone that doesn't deserve it."
However his old partners in crime - including Melander (Michael Chiklis) - betray him, causing him to go on a shooting rampage.
Parker goes to Florida's Palm Beach and finds a partner in Leslie (Lopez), an insider who could do with the cash on offer.
Taylor Hackford (Ray, Proof of Life) directs the film, which is due out on January 25, 2013 in the UK and the US.
