Jason Statham and director Guy Ritchie are officially reuniting for a remake of the French movie Le Convoyeur aka Cash Truck, which is now expected to begin filming before the end of the year.
The plot follows H, a cold and mysterious character working at a cash truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week. Weaving through a suspenseful and carefully constructed narrative, the film shifts across timelines and between various characters’ perspectives for a thrilling and mind-bending experience.
We’re now hearing that the action thriller could begin filming in London, England starting in early to mid-December, however, this is not confirmed.
HN Entertainment previously revealed that Guy Ritchie closed his deal for the Miramax project (after DiscussingFilm first reported on his involvement) along with confirming the production team will include cinematographer Alan Stewart (The Gentleman, Aladdin) and production designer Martyn John (The Last Kingdom).
Things are seemingly coming together quickly which isn’t surprising since a smaller film like this wouldn’t take as long as a major studio blockbuster.
Jason Statham and Guy Ritchie haven’t worked together since the disastrous Revolver from 2005, the third movie they did together.
Miramax has yet to give the film an official title or release date, Cash Truck has been the working title since Guy Ritchie got involved.
At one point Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock was set to star with Joel Silver (Predator, Lethal Weapon, Sherlock Holmes) producing.
Ritchie’s next release will be The Gentlemen which is set to be released 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).
