Guy Ritchie movie starts London filming
Filming on Toff Guys has just begun in London with Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, Jeremy Strong, Kate Beckinsale and Henry Golding.
Guy Ritchie directs from a screenplay he wrote with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson about a British drug lord who tries to sell his business empire to a family of billionaires from Oklahoma.
Ritchie also produces the Miramax film.
Shooting will run for two months on Toff Guys, one of several features now filming in London and the south-east. Others include Blackbird with Susan Sarandon and Kate Winslet and Ironbark starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
Other studio-based projects recently filming in the region include the Men in Black spinoff and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
