Guy Ritchie’s Wrath of Man gets pushed back to May
On the heels of Marvel Studios electing to move Black Widow from that weekend to July, MGM has decided to shift the release for the latest Guy Ritchie action pic Wrath of Man reuniting the filmmaker with Jason Statham back to May 7, according to Deadline. The film’s current release date will see the film going up against to no direct competition, however, it will still debut a week before Chris Rock’s upcoming horror film Spiral: From the Book of Saw.

Based on the 2004 French film titled Le Convoyeur or Cash Truck, the film will center on the cold and mysterious H who works at a cash truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angels each week. As it shifts across timelines and between various characters’ perspectives, the filmmaker is striving to weave a suspenseful and carefully-constructed narrative.
Alongside Statham, the cast for the film includes Josh Hartnett (Inherit the Viper), Scott Eastwood (The Fate of the Furious), Holt McCallany (Mindhunter), Jeffrey Donovan (Let Him Go), Laz Alonso (The Boys), Raul Castillo (Army of the Dead), Niamh Algar (Censor) and Post Malone (Spenser Confidential). This project marks the latest collaboration between Ritchie and Statham, who have previously worked together on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver.
Wrath of Man is written and directed by Guy Ritchie, who is currently in production with both Statham and Hartnett for the upcoming global spy film Five Eyes. The film is produced by Ivan Atkinson, Bill Block and Andrew Golov. Miramax acquired remake rights to the 2004 original French movie Le Convoyeur from StudioCanal for the project.
