Actor Jason Statham and director Guy Ritchie team up again to make a spy action thriller.
The first two films in which Jason Statham received great recognition were Lock & Stock (1998) and Snatch: Pigs and Diamonds (2000), both directed by Guy Ritchie. They also agreed on Revolver (2005), since then they have not collaborated together until now that they have teamed up to make Five Eyes.
In the sixteen years since, Wrath of Man full movie Jason Statham has become an action megastar with hits like Transporter (2002), Crank: Poison in the Blood (2006), The Expendables (2010), Fast & Furious 7 (2015) , Fast & Furious 8 (2017), Megalodon (2018) and Hobbs & Shaw (2019).
While Guy Ritchie has had certain ups and downs in his career, as his two Sherlock Holmes movies fetched more than $ 500 million each and Aladdin (2019) surpassed the $ 1 billion mark. But Operation U.N.C.L.E. (2015) and King Arthur: The Legend of Excalibur (2017) both failed, the latter in particular being one of the greatest commercial disasters in history.
Actor and director will return to the genre they know best.
Guy Ritchie’s latest film, The Gentlemen, is a snappy crime comedy that showed just how well he handles himself in his element. He is now preparing Five Eyes starring Jason Statham, Aubrey Plaza, Hugh Grant, Josh Hartnett and Cary Elwes.
The story centers on an MI6 agent (Jason Statham) and a CIA agent (Aubrey Plaza) recruited by the multinational intelligence network to prevent deadly weapons from falling into the wrong hands.
Five Eyes is just one of two Guy Ritchie / Jason Statham projects in the works, as they also shot Wrath of Man. This story stars H, a cold and mysterious character who works at a cash-protecting trucking company. He therefore he is responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars through Los Angeles each week.
