Things HEAT up between Jason Statham and Sofia Vergara

Clearly the poor box office returns on action in early 2013 is not slowing down, Doc and The Kid favourite, Jason Statham and, personally, we couldn't be happier.
Along with British drama Hummingbird 
and Sylvester Stallone penned and produced, 70s throw-back actioner, Homefront
Statham looks set to complete his trilogy of films beginning with H with a remake of Burt Reynold's 1986 film Heat.
Now ask me about remakes in any other genre or, more or less, starring anyone else and I am flat against them but, I think, Statham proved himself succesful in the remakes of Death Race and The Mechanic, they have original screenwriter (and Hollywood legend) William Goldman writing again (he wrote the novel and the screenplay in '86), Simon West (Con Air, Expendables 2) directing, Statham producing and frequent Stath collaborator, martial arts legend and awesome fight director Cory Yuen orchestrating the fisticuffs. Which, for me, is quite the line up. Where do I buy my ticket? How soon can I see this then? I am drooling as I type this.

Do you want to add to that list someone who will definitely make your ears and something else, prick up?
Well it seems after steaming up the screen with Jennifer Lopez in Parker that Jason can't leave the lovely Latino ladies alone because, announced today, Modern Family hottie Sofia Vergara will be starring opposite the British bulldog in Heat.
Not familiar with her? Well here she is...
Now you're sure this is going to be a hit, right?
Oh and want her action credentials?
How about this picture...
That's right she is also starring in Robert Rodriguez's follow up to Machete later this year and apparently theres some added bonuses to her assets that only a classy director like Rodriguez knows how to utilise. Makes Rose McGowen's leg gun in Planet Terror look positively tame, right?

This article was a pleasure to write because after the testicle kicking that action took over the last couple of months it looks like these fine folks, at least, are not going down without a fight!
