Planet Hollywood Resort hosted the red carpet premiere of FilmDistrict’s Parker on Thursday night.

In attendance were the film’s stars — Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez — as well as the film’s director Taylor Hackford.

Other celebrities in attendance included Paris Las Vegas headliner and “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks, stars of the show “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood Resort Coco Austin, Cheaza and Josh Strickland, L.A. Reid, Carrot Top, Holly Madison, Randy Couture, chef Carla Pellegrino and Claire Sinclair.

Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez team up to get their cut in the action thriller, Parker, based on the series of bestselling novels by Donald E. Westlake.

Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead.

Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning their biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider, who’s short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. Together, they devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean.

Parker is directed by Academy Award nominee Taylor Hackford (“Ray”) and also stars Michael Chiklis, Wendell Pierce (HBO’s “The Wire”) and Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte. In theaters nationwide tonight.
