On January 25, 2013, Belfast Telegraph posted Statham: Homefront a Privilege . If you’re wondering why this news is appearing on the SZ, it’s because the movie is Homefront with a script by Sly, who is also on board as a producer. Here are a few tidbits from the article…
“He (Sly) actually wrote it for himself, which is, for me, an amazing privilege. To be handed a script by Sly that he wrote for himself, that he asked me to do. It’s like wow; this is a real career moment.
“This is an Academy Award-winning writer. Yeah, he wrote it for himself and he handed it to me, so for me it was a tremendous thing.”
“It’s got James Franco, Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth, we have a great cast… I think you get quality actors and that’s all dependent on how good the material is.
“You get good writing and they all want to come and work.”

On January 15, 2013, Collider posted an update with Jason Statham. In it Statham talked about Homefront [written by Sly], Expendables 3 and more. Here are some tidbits…
Homefront is a film that Sylvester Stallone wrote for himself actually. So, to have a screenplay presented to me by him that he was intending to star in himself was a career point for me. I said, “Wow!” He’s a great writer and it’s a really, really cool story. It’s based on a book written by Chuck Logan called Homefront. He adapted it to suit me. It was like a tailor-made suit and Sly did all the sewing. Fantastic!
Did Sly talk to you at all about Expendables 3 and casting? Statham: No. I saw him on stage at the Golden Globes and he gave me the look. He went “Whoo!” He hasn’t said anything but I hear rumors. I should never go with rumors because they’re often not correct, but I hear Jackie Chan might be coming to the party and that would make me very happy because I do like Jackie Chan.

On October 3, 2012, TooFab posted a gallery of shots of Winona Ryder on location for the filming of Homefront. Here are a couple of tidbits:
- The 40-year-old actress was snapped on the set of her next movie with Jason Statham, “Homefront,” looking sexy with a tight leather jacket… The Sylvester Stallone-penned movie is only the next step in a return to the spotlight for Ryder, who has been keeping a relatively low profile since her ’80s/late ’90s heyday.
