Now Filming: Parker

Actors Wendell Pierce, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Statham, Nick Nolte, Patty LuPone and Michael Chiklis are all taking it easy down in the Big Easy while filming the new Taylor Hackford (Ray, The Devil’s Advocate) thriller 'Parker'. The film is based on a Donald Westlake novel called “Flashfire.”

And what’s it about? It's the story of a “thief who, though at times is forced to be a killer, still lives by a code of honor that includes never stealing money from people who need it.”

Shooting just began in New Orleans with an October 12, 2012 release date.
