Guy Ritchie’s Toff Guys adds Belgian actress Lyne Renee to cast
According to Deadline, Belgian actress Lyne Renee (Split) has been cast in director Guy Richie’s upcoming crime film Toff Guys. Renee is set to portray the role of Jackie, the wife of Jeremy Strong’s character Cannabis Kingpin Matthew.
She joins a cast that includes She joins Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club), Hugh Grant (Four Wedding and a Funeral), Collin Farrell (Widows), Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), and Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim).
Toff Guys will explore the collision between old money European wealth and the modern marijuana industrial complex with new gang entrants swarming. Ritchie’s signature visual cocktail will be served with an abundance of fun. Ritchie wrote the script with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson.
Ritchie is currently in post-production on the live-action adaptation of Disney’s Aladdin starring Billy Magnussen, Will Smith, and Naomi Scott. His last film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, was a costly misfire that grossed just $148 million worldwide on a $175 million budget. Still, the director’s Sherlock Holmes films were sizable hits, while his early work, namely Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels remain minor classics.
Miramax’s Bob Osher and Matthew Anderson will oversee the film in behalf of the film studio. Toff Guys’s production is scheduled to begin sometime this fall. The movie will film in England.
