Scott talked about that 2nd scene with Jason Statham in an interview with ‘screencrush’. Scott told about that scene: “Well that pissed me off!!” Scott told: “Well, listen, those producers are friends of mine and I want them to give me another job. But at the end of the day, what the hell are you doing giving me and Jason Statham two days for a fight scene, and then taking away half a day so you can film some sequence with [tennis star Novak] Djokovic hitting tennis balls at bad guys, which we knew would never be in the movie? People deserved to have a nice showdown at the end of that movie. If I was making it, it would have been different.”
