We are excited to meet with the STX team, as well as Ritchie and Statham, whose undeniable chemistry, philosophy and talent are sure to attract massive appeal from audiences around the world. ”
Adam Fogelson, President of STXfilms said:
“Jason Statham is a global box office heavyweight, and when he teams up with Guy Ritchie, he is an irresistible combination. It’s exciting to be back in business with Guy, Bill and the Miramax team after our shared success on The Gentlemen and we believe that Five Eyes is the kind of film that our partners overseas will love as much as we do. ”
