Madonna's hubbie Guy Ritchie ("Snatch," "Lock, Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels) is returning to his strengths by helming caper movie "RocknRolla" for Dark Castle Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures.

"RocknRolla," penned by Ritchie, follows a Russian mobster orchestrates a crooked land deal, putting millions of dollars up for grabs and attracting all of London's criminal underworld.

A dangerous crime lord, a sexy accountant, a corrupt politician and a band of petty thieves are among those double-crossing one another.

Casting for "RocknRolla" is under way with filming to take place in London at end of the end of June. It marks the rejuvenated Dark Castle's second project after "Whiteout" which is currently filming.
