The new Nick Stone will be released 15 September and is named ‘Dead Centre’:

Indonesia, January 2005. Nick Stone is working undercover, to retrieve incriminating material from amongst the tsunami-ravaged chaos of a devastated landscape. His team is attacked and a man dies — but not before he makes an agonising promise that will return one day to haunt him…

Moscow, March 2011. Semi-retired but restless, Stone finds himself at the centre of an extraordinary encounter which turns his world upside down. An oligarch’s young son and heir has been snatched — with his mother — from aboard a luxury yacht in the Seychelles, and only one man has what it takes to track them down and bring them home.

The fuse is lit, and Stone is hurtled into his most complex and compelling mission yet — a mission that leads him from the Alpine enclaves of the super-rich to the savage underbelly of war-torn Somalia. And in a world where piracy, extortion and betrayal lurk in the twisted wreckage of imperial ambition, Stone’s principal objective turns remorselessly from liberation to revenge…

Lots of articles about Jason Statham being in sight to perform Nick Stone in the upcoming movie Echelon, based on the Andy McNab novel ‘Firewall’. I’m not going to post them all here. We know Andy McNab said ages ago he would like Jason Statham to get the Nick Stone part “since he’s such a nice guy”. We’ll see but time is running and it won’t be long until we’ll know for sure, so… to be continued!

The articles also say that Hyde Park will try to sell Echelon at the Berlin movie festival and that a director has been found.. Simon Crane – a ‘stunt coordinator previously known for his work on Angelina Jolie vehicles  The Tourist and Salt’. It will be his directors debut. Good luck Simon, don’t let Andy’s many fans down!
