In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Jason Statham revealed that after he finishes work on all the latest Transporters and Cranks, his next project will be The Grabbers, a project written by David and Janet Peoples (12 Monkeys), which will be heavily influenced by the Bogart classic The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.  Statham had this to say about the project:
