Action movie superstar Jason Statham has now decided to step away from the upcoming Kevin Hart headline action-comedy The Man from Toronto. The movie, coming from Sony Pictures, was all set to be a key highlight of the studio's upcoming holiday schedule, with an initial release date set for the end of November this year.
The Man From Toronto tells the story of a mishap at an Airbnb rental that results in Kevin Hart's character being confused with a deadly assassin, who, of course, hails from Toronto. Thanks to this silly mix up, the two men are forced to join forces in order to help save the day without killing one another. Jason Statham was all set to play the assassin character, the kind of role that he can do with a flourish. Kevin Hart and Jason Statham previously appeared together in the Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs and Shaw, where Kevin Hart played a small yet very crucial role in the action, proving the two stars did have chemistry.
