Guy Ritchie is on a roll. Hot on the heels of April’s release of The Covenant starring Jake Gyllenhaal and recently wrapping filming on The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare starring Henry Cavill and Eiza González, the energetic Ritchie has set his next movie, due to begin production this summer in Spain. This marks the latest in a prolific streak for the director, whose combination of cinematic flourish, irreverent comedy, and reputation for fostering improvisation and collaboration on set has proved a hit with talent and audiences alike. Black Bear International will be introducing the highly anticipated film to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival.
Plot details – and the title – are being kept under wraps, but the film is understood to be a big-budget action spectacle laced with Ritchie’s trademark humor. The untitled project will reunite the director with recent collaborators Henry Cavill (The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Jake Gyllenhaal (The Covenant, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Southpaw) and Eiza González (The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw, Baby Driver).
Ritchie wrote the original screenplay, and will also produce alongside partner Ivan Atkinson, and Black Bear International’s John Friedberg, who also produced Ritchie’s last two movies.
