Now, this would be an interesting casting choice. It seems perennial action star Jason Statham is being pursued by Marvel to play the assassin Bullseye in the Daredevil TV series!
That’s according to Latino Review, who note that Statham was previously courted by 20th Century Fox for a movie reboot of the character.
Of course, the rights have now reverted to Marvel. And The Expendables, Fast and Furious 7 and The Transporter star is in play once again.
In the comics, Bullseye is a psychopathic assassin who never misses, and has the ability to turn any object into a weapon. He also has a real mad-on for Daredevil, and often works for the Kingpin as well.
Bullseye was, of course, played by Colin Farrell in Daredevil (2003), a movie I try not to think about.
Statham’s certainly got the physicality for the role, and is a more than good enough actor, despite his regular action roles.
Just watch Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) for a reminder of just how good he can be – then start dreaming of what he can do as Bullseye.
Plus, Charlie Cox and Statham beating the shit out of each other = awesome!
