Mickey Rourke Has Java Heat

Mickey Rourke Has Java Heat

No, the headline does not mean that Mickey Rourke and Twilight’s Kellan Lutz are getting out of the film business and are now pimping a new Lynx deodorant scent: the pair has signed on to Margate House Films’ new indie thriller Java Heat.

With Conor Allyn behind the camera, Heat will see a mysterious American type (Lutz) putting aside his anti-Islamic tendencies to team up with a Muslim cop in order to take down a light-fingered, jewel-theft-happy group of terrorists in Southeast Asia. Rourke will be on the other side of the law, playing a gem thief who dreams up the terror types’ nasty schemes. Seems fitting.

The new film is part of a wave of productions that have attracted actors to Asia to work. Rourke and Lutz join a list that already includes the likes of Christian Bale and Kevin Spacey. It also marks something of a reunion for the pair, who already worked together on the incoming Immortals.

Allyn scribbled the script with his father, Rob, and has already kicked off shooting.
