Jason Statham to join hands with Suicide Squad director for Levon's Trade

Actor Jason Statham will topline the upcoming action film Levon’s Trade, to be directed by Suicide Squad director David Ayer.

Sylvester Stallone, Hollywood veteran and Stathan's co-star from The Expendables movies, has adapted the film's screenplay from the novel of the same name by comic author Chuck Dixon, reported entertainment news outlet Deadline.

It marks Stallone’s first screenplay since Rambo: Last Blood in 2019 and Creed II in 2018. Levon's Trade will chart how Levon Cade (Statham) left his “profession” behind him to go ‘straight’ and work in construction. He wants to live a simple life and be a good father to his daughter.

Production will begin in London in March of 2024. Ayer and Chris Long will produce for Cedar Park Entertainment, alongside Statham for Punch Palace Productions, Stallone for Balboa Productions, John Friedberg for Black Bear and Bill Block for BlockFilm. 

Producer Bill Block said “I am thrilled to be reuniting with some of my most talented and longstanding partners on Levon’s Trade. I first worked with David Ayer on Fury and it was immediately clear that he is a director at the very top of his game. Jason and I have worked together on a number of films, and most recently the three of us collaborated on The Beekeeper. Levon’s Trade is going to be another spectacular action movie and I’m confident we’ve assembled the dream team to bring the first novel in this celebrated series to the big screen.” 

With The Meg 2: The Trench and Fast X, two successful sequels, Statham has been rather busy. The Beekeeper will be released by MGM in 2024. Stallone recently reprised in Expendables 4 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
