"Parker" film adaptation planned

Jason Stratham and Jennifer Lopez are the rumored stars for a film based on Donald E. Westlake's "Parker" novels. Westlake, under his pseudonym Richard Stark, wrote a long series of hard-boiled books about the morally flexible thief and the first two novels were recently adapted into comics form by Darwyn Cooke.
