Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham will reteam for the spy action thriller “Five Eyes”, says The Hollywood Reporter.
STXfilms has nabbed the worldwide distribution rights to the Miramax-produced pic and will start shopping it to buyers at the virtual Toronto Film Festival market. The feature will see Statham play Orson Fortune, a MI6 guns-and-steel agent recruited by global intelligence alliance ‘Five Eyes’ to track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology that threatens to disrupt the world order.
Ritchie and Jason earlier worked together on ”Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” and ”Snatch”.
Production begins next month on the film in Europe.
