Guy Ritchie’s “Wrath of Man” action film starring Jason Statham to launch on Amazon Prime

Guy Ritchie’s new action film Wrath of Man, which marks his first time working with Jason Statham in 15 years, is set to launch on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and Ireland later this year.

The explosive revenge thriller will hit the streaming platform this December, according to Metro.

The Fast and Furious actor reunited with the visionary director for the first time in over a decade to create the film based on the French film Le Convoyeur.

Guy plucked Jason, 53, out of a French Connection campaign to star in his first two films, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), and later Snatch (2000), almost 25 years ago.

Born in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, Statham began practising Chinese martial arts, kickboxing, and karate recreationally in his youth while working at local market stalls. An avid footballer and diver, he was a member of Britain’s national diving team, competing for England in the 1990 Commonwealth Games. Shortly after, he was asked to model for French Connection, Tommy Hilfiger, and Levi’s in various advertising campaigns. Statham’s past professional history working in market stalls inspired his casting in the Guy Ritchie crime films.
