Jason Statham is one of those Hollywood icons who has appeared in several action movies. But The Mechanic franchise is one of his most popular movie series. Both the first two films were commercial hits and gave the viewers high-intensity action scenes. Therefore, many fans have been ever since waiting for The Mechanic 3. But will it ever happen? Let us find that out-
The Mechanic explores Arthur Bishop, a mob hitman, who is ruthlessly effective with weapons and explosives. His selling point, though, is his ability to murder difficult targets while making it appear to be an accident. Arthur Bishop is a righteously paranoid man who is always double-crossing or getting double-crossed. The movie is a gripping action thriller that keeps us on the edge of our seats throughout.
Arthur finds love in the sequel, Mechanic: Resurrection, in the shape of Jessica Alba’s angelic children’s shelter worker. As you can anticipate, the bad guys abduct her in order to force Bishop to work for them, and things don’t go well for them.
Will There Be The Mechanic 3?
The first two films in The Mechanic franchise were released on January 28, 2011, and August 26, 2016, respectively. Meanwhile, as far as the word goes for The Mechanic 3, there has not been any announcement or confirmation from the studio or the producers of the movies. The second film released about five years after the first movie.
However, it has been almost seven years since then, and there are no updates about The Mechanic 3 whatsoever. Moreover, we should also not forget that the actor Jason Statham is committed to other projects. So even if The Mechanic 3 is greenlit ( which we don’t see happening anytime soon), fans should not expect it to release before 2023.
What Can The Mechanic 3 Be About?
We know that the second film, titled Mechanic Ressurection, picked up the story after the events of the first film. Thus, if The Mechanic 3 is ever made, we expect the same thing from the movie. At the end of the second film, Arthur eventually managed to take the ‘ghost’ and get his life back on track. And for one more time, he had to convince the world that he was dead.
Meanwhile, in ‘The Mechanic’ 3, Arthur might have to return to his old ways because of his enemies from the past. For the line of work that Arthur is in, it is pretty common for people to have several dangerous enemies And They are always waiting for their chance. However, there is also a chance that the third movie might delve into Arthur’s past life. We may find out exactly how Arthur became so good at his job. And where did he acquire his training and learn to master every kind of weapon there is.
On the other hand, there’s the gunrunner who is on Arthur’s door, and the hitman helps him. Despite the two apparently hit it off, we can rule out the possibility of him tuning out to be Arthur’s enemy in The Mechanic 3. There are several threads in Arthur’s life that can continue to the storyline of the third film, as most of his life is a mystery.
Jason Statham leads the cast of the Mechanic franchise in the role of Arthur Bishop. The first film also stars Ben Foster as Steve McKenna, Tony Goldwyn as Dean Sanderson, Donald Sutherland as Harry McKenna. Then there is Jeff Chase as Burke, John McConnell playing Andrew Vaughn, Mini Andén as Sarah, and Stuart Greer as Ralph. Meanwhile, the film also features Christa Campbell as Kelly and Lance E. Nichols as Henry, among others.
In the second film, Jessica Alba appears as Gina Thornton. Tommy Lee Jones plays Max Adams and Michelle Yeoh stars as Mei. The film also casts Sam Hazeldine as Riah Crain. John Cenatiempo as Jeremy Cocs and Toby Eddington as Adrian Cook, with a few others. There are no updates about the cast of The Mechanic 3, but we can be sure of Jason Statham’s return in the lead role whenever there is a third film. Also, there might be some old faces along with a few new additions in the cast.
