Jason Statham Nearly Drowned On Set!

Untitled_005Jason Statham nearly drowned on set. The Transporter star, who will be starring as Lee Christmas in The Expendables alongside legendary actor Sylvester Stallone says that action films, yes they can be dangerous but defended the genre which he says isn’t as well received as dramatic films. Stallone told collider.com:

”Everyone has this conjecture that action films are somewhat less prestigious than dramatic films. Nothing could be further from the truth. I’ve done them both and this is hard and dangerous. I mean, Jason [Statham] nearly drowned to death – lucky he’s a great swimmer. All of us would’ve been walking on the bottom of the Black Sea by now – well, not really walking, probably floating – and that’s some serious stuff. Things happen here. It’s very very unique.”

Also Stallone, himself believes that films like this won’t be produced in the coming future as there may be a lack of stars that will commit to roles needed. He added:

”They’re not going to make films like this much longer because it takes a certain person that’s willing to commit and go for it and have an aura. The hardest thing is to find an action star. I don’t give a damn what anyone says, stars they come and go. An action star, you can count on one hand, because it’s a very interesting element.”
