HN Entertainment has exclusively confirmed that cinematographer Alan Stewart (Aladdin, The Gentlemen) will be reuniting with Guy Ritchie for his next film titled Cash Truck (aka Vigilance), which is expected to be next for the director.
The other day, DiscussingFilm reported that Guy Ritchie was in talks with Miramax to write/direct Vigilance and posted a brief synopsis for the female-led crime flick.
Will follow an American who has fallen on hard times who then starts a job at a London armored car company and works her way into the confidence of a tight-knit heist crew.
We can also confirm that Guy has closed his deal with Miramax to write/direct the project and that filming could begin as early as this fall/winter in London, England.
UPDATE: After some extended digging on this project it might be the same movie that producer Joel Silver has been trying to get made for years and is a remake of the 2004 French film Le Convoyeur.
Back in 2017, Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock (Gravity, The Blind Side) was attached to star and had a very similar synopsis. It’s unknown if Bullock is still involved.
Silver and Ritchie worked together on the Sherlock Holmes movies.
This might explain why Guy handed-off directing duties on Sherlock Holmes 3 to Dexter Fletcher (Rocketman, Eddie The Eagle), said to begin shooting in California early next year.
Ritchie’s Aladdin (also shot by Stweart) made a huge splash over the summer earning over a billion dollars and producers are already teasing a sequel could be in the works. It remains to be seen if Guy will be returning to direct Aladdin 2.
Alan also worked on Guy’s upcoming gangster flick The Gentlemen, which is set for release on January 24th, 2020.
THE GENTLEMEN follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business forever it triggers plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him (featuring an all-star ensemble cast including Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant).
