Δεν κλέβει ποτέ χρήματα από εκείνους που τα έχουν ανάγκη. Τον Parker στηρίζει η κτηματομεσίτρια Leslie (Jennifer Lopez) που διαπιστώνει ότι μια μικρή κλοπή είναι στην πραγματικότητα μέσα στις δυνατότητές της. Ο Hurley (Nick Nolte), είναι ο μέντορας του Parker.

A crime/thriller centered on a thief who lives by a code of honor that includes never stealing money from people who need it.
After Parker is stiffed by his partners in a bank robbery, he vows revenge and tracks them to their next job, a jewelry heist in Palm Beach. With the help of his lover, Claire, and real estate agent Leslie Mackenzie, Parker stalks his victims and their loot.

HACKFORD’S HIGH STAKES WESTLAKE ADAPTATION BEGINS PRODUCTION
New Orleans, LA (August 5, 2011) – Jennifer Lopez and Nick Nolte join Jason Statham in PARKER, the first Donald Westlake adaptation to officially name its ‘criminal with a conscience’ by his true name, Parker. Production has begun on the Taylor Hackford (Ray) directed, high-stakes action-thriller, adapted by John J. McLaughlin (Black Swan) from Westlake’s novel Flashfire. Filming on location in Ohio, Louisiana and Florida, the film also stars Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four), Wendell Pierce (Ray), Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek), Tony Award Winner Patti LuPone (City By The Sea), and Emma Booth (The Boys Are Back).
“Parker is a man of integrity. He has a code. He believes that there must be order in whatever profession, and if that order is broken or if he’s crossed he will go to the ends of the earth to make it right and get even.” says Hackford. “I can’t think of a better actor for this role than Jason Statham. In the novel, Westlake created a fantastic character that Parker butts up against,” explains Hackford, of Lopez’s role. “She’s a real estate agent who finds that a little larceny may in fact be in the cards for her.” Nick Nolte will play Hurley, Parker’s mentor. Statham will next be seen in the 23 September release “Killer Elite,” Lopez is currently shooting “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” and Nolte’s highly anticipated “Warrior” opens September 9th.
The behind-the-scenes team for PARKER includes Cinematographer J. Michael Muro (Traitor); Costume Designer is Melissa Bruning (Let Me In), and Production Designer Missy Stewart (Killers). PARKER is being produced by Les Alexander, Jonathan Mitchell, Steven Chasman, Sidney Kimmel and Taylor Hackford.
