HN Entertainment can exclusively reveal that director Guy Ritchie’s next feature film at Miramax titled Cash Truck has added production designer Martyn John to the film’s growing production team.
Cash Truck is a remake of the 2004 French film Le Convoyeur, which at one time had both producer Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes) and Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock (Gravity) attached.
The intrigue begins when Alex (Bullock), an American who has fallen on hard times, starts a job at a London armored car company that was the recent target of a deadly heist. She works her way into the confidence of the tight-knit crew and we discover that there is much more to Alex than it seems. As she goes to dangerous and morally complicated lengths to pursue her own mysterious agenda, an explosive secret from Alex’s past surfaces propelling the story in shocking, thrilling new directions.
It remains to be seen if Ritchie’s incarnation of Cash Truck will either star Sandra Bullock or keep the premise of having a female protagonist in the action thriller.
John is likely best known for his work on the first two seasons of the series The Last Kingdom.
We previously confirmed that Guy (who has closed his deal with Miramax) would be reuniting with Aladdin and The Gentlemen cinematographer Alan Stewart on the crime flick.
TheSun recently reported the rumor that Jason Statham is going to have a role in the film, finally reuniting him with director Guy Ritchie after last working together on Revolver back in 2005.
Filming is said to be taking place in London, England and could begin as early as this fall/winter.
This means we’ll be hearing some big casting news very very soon.
DiscussingFilm first reported Guy Ritchie was in talks with Miramax for the remake.
A release date for Cash Truck has yet to be announced.
Ritchie’s next film The Gentlemen 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).
