I had the opportunity to sit down with Simon West, the director of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Con Air, to discuss his newest theatrical release, The Mechanic. The film stars Jason Statham as a hitman and Ben Foster as his apprentice, and my review of the movie will be released here at GeekTyrant on Wednesday, January 26th. The film hits theaters on Friday, January 28th, 2011. Let us know what you think of the interview in the comments section. Are you excited for The Mechanic?
