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.
