“We’ve got a movie we’re trying to do, written by David and Janet Peoples, in the vein of an old film, ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Madre,’ Statham said. John Huston’s The Treasure of the Sierra (1948) starred Humphrey Bogart and Walter Huston as gold diggers who become contaminated by greed.
“It’s not a remake or anything,” clarified Statham, “But it’s a little bit like that about relationships and how greed contaminates the relationships these three people have. The working title is ‘The Grabbers.'”
