Deadline reports that Clint Eastwood’s son Scott Eastwood has landed a supporting role in the Guy Ritchie remake of the 2004 French film Le Convoyeur aka Cash Truck.
Pacific Rim: Uprising star Scott Eastwood is set to play opposite Jason Statham and Holt McCallanay in Cash Truck, the Miramax action thriller directed by Guy Ritchie.
Eastwood’s credits include Suicide Squad, Fury, Pacific Rim: Uprising, Fate of The Furious, and Snowden.
The film will be led by Jason Statham, who Guy Ritchie discovered and gave a role to in his breakout feature Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. He eventually took the lead roles in Ritchie’s follow-ups Snatch and Revolver, the latter being the last film the pair worked together until Cash Truck.
Statham stars as 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 carefully constructed narrative, the film shifts across timelines and among various characters’ perspectives.
Statham and Eastwood were both in Fate of The Furious, making this a bit of a reunion.
It was previously reported that Alien 3 and Mindhunter actor Holt McCallany will have a role in the film as well.
HN Entertainment first reported the production team on Ritchie’s Cash Truck will include Aladdin cinematographer Alan Stewart (The Gentlemen) and production designer Martyn John (The Kingdom).
Originally, Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock was attached for the role that Statham has taken back when Joel Silver (Lethal Weapon, Sherlock Holmes) was producing.
Filming is set to take place in both London, England and Los Angeles, California.
A release date has yet to be given to Cash Truck.
Guy Ritchie’s next film The Gentlemen starring Matthew McConaughey, Henry Golding, and Charlie Hunnam will be out in theaters 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).
