Jason Statham takes over for Daniel Craig in ‘Layer Cake’ sequel

Statham

Jason Statham will star in an upcoming sequel to Layer Cake, the 2004 cockney crime thriller that scored Daniel Craig his Bond gig.

According to Deadline, Statham and his producing partner Steve Chasman have nabbed the rights to J.J. Connolly’s novel Viva La Madness.

Viva La Madness takes place after the events of Layer Cake, which was brought to the screen by Matthew Vaughn.

Statham will play the same nameless character that Craig took on in that film.

[Spoiler Alert] That Craig’s character seemed to die in the final moments of Layer Cake is apparently no obstacle for Statham. After all, he survived the end of Crank too.
