CBS now has The Mechanic

The Mechanic, a film about an elite hitman who teaches his trade to an apprentice, who also happens to have a connection to one of the hitman's previous victims, has now changed hands from Millennium Films to CBS.

The remake of the 1972 film is directed by Simon West, stars Jason Statham (Death Race), Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma) and Donald Sutherland (The Italian Job), and is written by Richard Wenk and Lewis John Carlino.

But how does Millennium Films feel about this? Well, "We are very proud of The Mechanic and could not be more pleased to be working with CBS Films on this release," stated Millennium Films' Avi Lerner.
