“Mindhunter” scene-stealer Holt McCallany has been cast in a leading role opposite Jason Statham in Guy Ritchie’s return to the gangster genre with “Cash Truck” for Miramax.
A reimagining of the 2004 French film “Le Convoyeur,” the revenge-based action thriller in which Statham plays H, a cold and mysterious character working at a cash-truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week.
Weaving through a carefully constructed narrative, the film shifts across timelines and among various characters’ perspectives. McCallany plays Bullet, who leads the transportation team and brings aboard H, who might not be who he says he is.
Bill Block and Ivan Atkinson are producing. Filming begins next month in London before moving to Los Angeles.
