Michael Chiklis, who just wrapped his role as the father on the short-lived ABC superhero family series No Ordinary Family, returned to feature film work with a role on Taylor Hackford’s upcoming action movie Parker.
According to Deadline, Chiklis signed on to play the lead villain opposite Jason Statham.
Film District recently acquired U.S. distribution for Parker with Statham playing the lead role of the titular thief in the remake of the films Point Blank and Payback.
John J. McLaughlin adapted Donald E. Westlake’s novel for the latest adaptation of Parker’s story.
Jennifer Lopez also continued talks to play Leslie, a woman who becomes involved with Parker during one of his heists.
Lopez recently signed on to join Cameron Diaz on the adaptation of the popular pregnancy guide What To Expect When You're Expecting from director Kirk Jones.
