(02/29/16) Excerpts from MAAC Interview with Michelle Yeoh
MAAC: Our Fans heard that you had just finished filming with Jason Statham on 'Mechanic: Resurrection', Can you give us any little insights into that?

MICHELLE YEOH: He's fun, he (Statham) is very good at what he does. I actually only have a cameo role in that film, I really wanted to be able to do more because you know, with Jessica Alba, we had a nice time filming, we were in Thailand. I only really had about two weeks with them which was too short you know.

So I played the "reliable buddy", that when he's in trouble he needs to go to.

MAAC: We were hoping for you to have had a big role in that film.

MICHELLE YEOH: I know, I know. I think alot of people wanted that to have happened but maybe next time.

The first Mechanic film, which was made in 2011, followed an elite hit man (Statham) that teaches his trade to an apprentice (Ben Foster) who has a connection to one of his previous victims. It was a remake of the 1972 Michael Winner classic of the same name, which starred Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent (Statham and Foster played their characters, respectively).

In the sequel, Statham will reprise his title role as a master assassin who faked his death, in an attempt to walk away from his former profession, in order to lead a peaceful and quiet retirement. When an old foe kidnaps the love of his life, he is forced to travel the globe to complete three assassinations, while making them look like accidents. It will be directed by German director Dennis Gansel (The Wave).

The first installment was filmed in the US states Louisiana, Illinois and Michigan. Reportedly the sequel's listed filming locations include Thailand (Bangkok and Phuket - Koh Lipe), Australia (Sydney), Bulgaria (Varna), and Brazil (Rio de Janeiro - Sugarloaf Mountain).

The Mechanic 2 was first announced at AFM 2012. The film is set for a wide release by Lionsgate on January 22, 2016.
