Jason Statham is a dad out to protect his little girl in the dramatic action thriller, "Homefront."

As a Drug Enforcement Administration officer, he helped destroy a drug-dealing motorcycle gang. For safety concerns, he and his daughter move to a new town, but it turns out to be a mecca for meth, chock-full of bad guys who don't like the new guy one bit.

"All of the physical hand to hand stuff is all me. It's always been that way ever since, you know, way back in the day when I did 'The Transporter' for Luc Besson. I just have a certain pride to do that stuff and, you know, if you've got the ability, why not? Why not use that, you know, misspent youth?" said Statham.

In this film, it's like father, like daughter.

"She obviously does not deal with boys, and I think that a lot of her qualities, you know, her confidence and the fact that she stands her ground, I feel like I have those qualities, too," said Izabela Vidovic.

"Homefront" also features James Franco, Kate Bosworth and Winona Ryder, with the screenplay by Sylvester Stallone. The film is rated R and is in theaters.
