Calm down, calm down. Jason Statham, the world's foremost B-Movie star, is not tackling the Michael Mann epic that pitted Al Pacino against Robert De Niro. No, Statham is remaking the Burt Reynolds 'Heat' from 1986, and it was originally going to be helmed by Brian De Palma. Now it's going to be directed by Simon West.
