LONDON: Actor Jason Statham, known for playing the hard man in a list of Hollywood blockbusters, said he hoped his latest film “Hummingbird” would show a more emotional side to his acting even though the thriller is packed with violence.

Statham, 45, walked the red carpet with his supermodel girlfriend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in London’s Leicester Square on Monday for the world premiere of “Hummingbird” in which he plays an ex-soldier living on the streets in London. As Joey Jones, he becomes the macho enforcer for the Chinese underworld while seeking vengeance for the murder of a friend in the film being released under the title “Redemption” in the United States.–Reuters
