Guy Ritchie and The Statham are finally making their fourth film together.
Well, this has been a long time coming. The Statham was given his big break on the big screen by Guy Ritchie, all the way back in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. They then went on to make Snatch together, as well as 2005’s Revolver. But they’ve been apart for some time since.
Now, for the first time in around 15 years, they’re make a new film together.
It’ll be a remake of the French film Le Convoyeur, which tells the story of a man called H, described as ‘cold and mysterious’, who works at a trucking company. His job? Moving millions upon millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week.
The French original – a revenge thriller – uses multiple timelines and perspectives to build its story (it says here), and the movie is being backed by Miramax.
Guy Ritchie said in a statement announcing the project that “I’m looking forward to bringing this story to life and working with Jason while he still has the use of his knees”.
Whether this is the same project that Ritchie set up at Miramax a week or two back, or an entirely different film, remains to be seen. Our earlier news report on that one can be found here.
No word yet on release date and such trivialities. We’ll keep you posted though.
