Jason Statham & Guy Ritchie reuniting for new action thriller
Deadline is reporting that Jason Statham (Hobbs & Shaw) and Guy Ritchie (The Gentlemen) will be re-teaming on an upcoming untitled project for Miramax. The revenge-based action thriller will be the third movie the duo has collaborated on, following Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch.
The untitled movie will follow H, a cold and mysterious character working at a cash truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week. Weaving through a suspenseful and carefully constructed narrative, the film shifts across timelines and between various characters’ perspectives for a thrilling and mind-bending experience.
“I’m looking forward to bringing this story to life and working with Jason while he still has the use of his knees,” said Ritchie.
Miramax CEO Bill Block, who will produce alongside Ivan Atkinson, added: “Working again with Guy Ritchie on our second collaboration together, alongside renowned actor Jason Statham, is a privilege, and we anticipate that the tone and flavor of these two longtime friends will resurrect nothing less than a true, genre classic.”
Miramax acquired remake rights to the 2004 original French movie Le Convoyeur from StudioCanal for the project.
Following his recent release of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw in theaters, Statham’s upcoming projects include Spy 2, reprising his comedic role as Rick Ford.
