The film studio are currently searching for a director with a potential September 2022 start date for filming in London and Atlanta.

“The Bee Keeper” is based on a spec script by “Salt” and “Law Abiding Citizen” writer Kurt Wimmer and is an action thriller steeped in the mythology of beekeeping.

Block said: “‘The Bee Keeper’ explores universal themes with an unconventional story that will have fans sitting on the edge of their seats. We’re excited to bring another iconic and irresistible film to audiences around the globe.”

Jason previously revealed that he was hoping to return to the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise for the last two movies after missing out on a part in ‘F9’.

The ‘Expendables‘ star said: “I’d love to come back for those couple of movies. It’s thin ice that I’m skating on if I talk about what’s going to happen in the upcoming movies.

“But I know Justin Lin, I know him really well, and it was funny, when I came on to do the cameo in 6, he never turned up to 7 and 8, and they’re the ones that I did, so we’re destined to do something bigger.”

He continued: “It’s great to work with Vin Diesel and all the other characters, I’ve made some great friends on that movie, and I really love the film franchise itself. I think it’s a global success for all the right reasons.

“To be a part of it is just a great privilege. So if they want me in the next ones, I’ll be there.”

Jason Statham’s upcoming films also include: Five Eyes and Spy 2.
