BLITZ: First trailer lands for the Ken Bruen based film.

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for BLITZ.

Folks may remember that was Crimespree that first broke the news that Jason Statham (Pictured right with Ken Bruen and dirctor Elliott Lester) would be starring as Brant, a rather crude, un-pc, borderline sociopath of a cop, in the film version of Ken Bruen’s novel BLITZ.

“The South East London police squad are down and out: Detective Sergeant Brant is in hot water for assaulting a police shrink, Chief Inspector Roberts’ wife has died in a horrific car accident, and WPC Falls is still figuring out how to navigate her job as a black female investigator in the notorious unit. When a serial killer takes his show on the road, things get worse for all three. Nicknamed “The Blitz” by the rabid London media, the killer is aiming for tabloid immortality by killing cops in different beats around the city.”

Elliott Lester (LOVE IS A DRUG) directed a screenplay from Nathan Parker (MOON).

There is no official release date as of yet.
