Guy Ritchie preps for London filming
Following a lengthy shoot on Disney’s Aladdin last year, Guy Ritchie is back in the director’s chair as Toff Guys gears up to shoot in the capital later this year.
Ritchie also wears the producer’s hat for the film, which he wrote with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson.
The story follows a British drug lord as he tries to sell his business empire to a family of billionaires from Oklahoma.
