The upcoming Operation Fortune: Ruse De Guerre has mysteriously been removed from its March release date.

Well, here’s some unwelcome news. Guy Ritchie’s next film, Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre has been removed from the release schedules by distributor STX Films. We’ve been excitedly waiting for this one too. With a packed cast including Jason Statham, Aubrey Plaza, Josh Hartnett, Cary Elwes, Bugzy Malone, and Hugh Grant, not to mention a ridiculous premise (and title), the project looks like it could be wildly entertaining.

Originally set to release in January, the film was then pushed back into March. Now it has disappeared from the release schedule altogether. One possible theory is that the film’s March 18th release date was just too close to the launch of Matt Reeve’s upcoming blockbuster, The Batman. Perhaps keen not to take on the might of the Dark Knight, STX may have opted to reschedule.

The film itself sounds brilliantly nuts, with Statham’s character, an MI6 agent who goes by the rather brilliant name of Orson Fortune, being paired up with a CIA tech expert played by Plaza, to stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology that could presumably end all life as we know it.

We can’t wait to see this one, but it looks like we’ll be waiting for a while longer yet. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
