When one thinks about the old-school tough guy of The Fast And The Furious franchise only a few prominent names come into existence, and Jason Statham is one of them. The action genre franchise has been entertaining us for over two decades. With every installment, The Fast And The Furious family has not only grown in size but also made a revenue worth billions.

Jason Statham was introduced to The Fast and The Furious universe in the sixth installment of the action franchise in 2016. The Expendables actor played the main antagonist Deckard Shaw in Fast and the Furious‘s seventh part. The Fast And The Furious has gone to become more than a perpetual series of successful installments winning millions of hearts across the globe. The actor is a part of the tenth installment of the franchise Fast X too.

What Is The Fight Clause Of Jason Statham?

Signing a multi-hero project has its own pros and cons. Jason Statham has been an indispensable member of The Fast And The Furious family since 2016. Action movies are not only about blowing up the cars and fighting sequences but also about providing protection to the respective actors from getting injured while performing the stunts. Hollywood has given tough competition to the WWE as it is very common to spot an injured player in the boxing ring, but within the set premises it is next to impossible to witness a brutally injured actor while performing a fight scene.

Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, and Dwayne Johnson went on to become a brand in themselves after displaying their acting prowess in The Fast And The Furious series. They have a contract of not losing against each other in the fighting sequences as a part of their projected stardom. A report from the Wall Street Journal brought the weird and unusual contract between the A-listers of Hollywood into the light.

‘‘According to producers and crew members on the films, Mr. Statham, 51 years old, negotiated an agreement with the studio that limits how badly he can be beaten up on the screen.”

The contract comes into existence to make the actors look larger than life on the screen. With The Fast And The Furious series fans around the world expect much organic fighting scenes and stunts. Contracts like this help the actors to maintain their star power irrespective of the characters played by them.

The sequel stars actors like Wu Jing, Page Kennedy, Skyler Samuels, Sophia Cai, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, and Cliff Curtis. Director Ben Wheatley had spoken about the sequel of Meg, during an interview with Comicbook.com in 2021 and mentioned, “It’s an opportunity to do action on such an insanely large scale, that it’s just unbelievable.” Jason Statham is the main protagonist in the movie pitted against the giant Megs that have always been an environmental danger for our environment.

Meg 2: The Trench will hit theaters on August 4, 2023.
