Jennifer Lopez Thriller 'Parker' Set for Oct. 2012 Release
FilmDistrict will release the Jennifer Lopez/Nick Nolte starrer Parker on Oct. 12, 2012. Thriller is based on Donald Westlake's book Flashfire.
Nolte is the most recent addition to the cast; he'll play a mentor to Jason Statham's title character. Lopez, says director Taylor Hackford, plays "a real estate agent who finds that a little larceny may in fact be in the cards for her." Lopez and Nolte previously worked together on Oliver Stone's U-Turn.
