Jason Statham to film Guy Ritchie thriller in London and LA

The action thriller sees a return to the UK for Ritchie, who directed his last two features in the capital 

Guy Ritchie is at the helm of a remake of the 2004 French heist revenge thriller Le Convoyeur, currently readying to shoot in London and LA starring Jason Statham.

The Miramax film, which has also been referred to as Cash Truck, centres on H, a mysterious character who works for an armoured car company that shifts millions of dollars around the country.

Ritchie has been busy in post on The Gentlemen, which started filming in London around a year ago with Matthew McConaughey, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Charlie Hunnam and Colin Farrell.

The feature is about a British drug lord trying to sell his empire to a family of billionaires from Oklahoma.

Ritchie’s recent credits also include Aladdin for Disney, also shot largely in the UK, and which grossed £1bn worldwide.

The UK has long been established as one of the world’s top production hubs, with several new studio spaces currently being developed to meet demand.

Disney and Netflix already have permanent studio bases near London as inward investment projects continue to buoy the UK’s overall yearly production spend.
