Guy Ritchie, Jason Statham prep UK shoot
Guy Ritchie is at the helm of a remake of the 2004 French heist revenge thriller Le Convoyeur, currently readying to shoot in London and LA starring Jason Statham.
The Miramax film, which has also been referred to as Cash Truck, centres on H, a mysterious character who works for an armoured car company that shifts millions of dollars around the country.
Production Intelligence subscribers can log in for details on the film including shoot dates and key HoDs such as casting director, line producer and production designer.
Ritchie has been busy in post on The Gentlemen, which started filming in London around a year ago with Matthew McConaughey, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Charlie Hunnam and Colin Farrell.
The feature is about a British drug lord trying to sell his empire to a family of billionaires from Oklahoma.
Ritchie’s recent credits also include Aladdin for Disney, which grossed £1bn worldwide.
