Guy Ritchie’s next film, a big-budget action-movie, which will revolve around two extraction specialists who must plan an escape path for a high-level female negotiator has a cast that includes Henry Cavill, Jake Gyllenhaal and Eiza González.
The flick said to be laced with his trademark humour, according to reports has roles for Gyllenhaal, who starred in Ritchie’s critically-acclaimed The Covenant, Cavill, who teamed with the director on the underrated The Man From U.N.C.L.E., as well as the recently wrapped WWII movie The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, which also features González, who’s probably best known for her role in Ambulance.
Ritchie will direct from his own original screenplay, with shooting set to get underway in Spain this summer.
In 1998, Ritchie burst onto the British film scene with his dazzling debut hit Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Since then he has worked on a tidy selection of cult favourites while revisiting guns and gangsters, adapted a classic spy show, adapted an iconic literary detective, knight and king of the Round Table and rebooted a Disney character.
