Christopher Walken and Johnny Hallyday Cast In Potsdamer Platz, Is Jason Statham Out?

It's been a while since we last heard from anything from Tony Scott's project Potsdamer Platz. Back in April, Mickey Rourke, Javier Bardem and Jason Statham all signed on to the project about two members of a New Jersey crime family looking to go international, but things have been quiet since then for the long in-development project. Fortunately, it looks as though the project is still very much alive and has just added two new cast members.

French website leParisien is reporting that Christopher Walken and French actor Johnny Hallyday have joined the cast. Unfortunately, the article doesn't supply any information regarding who the actors will play in the film, though an educated guess would be that Walken plays a member of the Jersey mafia and that Hallyday is one of the internationals the two soldiers encounter abroad.

What's strange is that Jason Statham is not mentioned in the article, meaning that he's either no longer involved with the project or that the French don't care about him. I'm inclined to lean towards the former because, seriously, who doesn't love Jason Statham? That guy's awesome.
