Jason Statham Exits 'Man From Toronto,' Is Replaced By Woody Harrelson

Jason Statham has exited the movie The Man From Toronto, which also stars Kevin Hart.

Instead, Woody Harrelson will be starring in the role Jason was originally attached to play.

Jason apparently wanted the action-comedy to be an R-rated film, but Sony execs did not envision the film this way. Jason abruptly dropped out, THR reports, and now Woody is attached to star instead.

The film follows a case of a mistaken identity as its jumping-off point after the world’s deadliest assassin, known as the Man from Toronto, and a New York City screw-up run into each other at an Airbnb. A clash of personalities, and a clash with deadly killers, ensues, according to THR.
