The English actor Jason Statham (52) will again play a role in an action film by director Guy Ritchie. The new Miramax film has no title yet but is based on the French film Le Convoyeur – or De Transporteur – from 2004.
The film is about a driver at a money transport company that transports hundreds of millions of dollar bills in Los Angelos. Deadline reports that Monday.
Bill Block from Miramax and Ivan Atkinson produce the film. Guy Ritchie is enthusiastic: “I’m looking forward to bringing this story to life and working with Jason again.” A recording period and release date have not yet been announced.
Ritchie and Statham previously worked together on the films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch.
