Jason Statham will re-team with his “Snatch” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” helmer Guy Ritchie for the latter’s next and still untitled revenge-based action thriller film at Miramax Films.
The studio has acquired remake rights to the original 2004 French film “Le Convoyeur” from StudioCanal which is expected to serve as the basis for the new film.
The story follows 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.
The story weaves through “a suspenseful and carefully constructed narrative, the film shifts across timelines and between various characters’ perspectives for a thrilling and mind-bending experience.”
Ritchie says in a statement: “I’m looking forward to bringing this story to life and working with Jason while he still has the use of his knees.” Bill Block and Ivan Atkinson will produce.
