Previously titled “Toff Guys,” filmmaker Guy Ritchie’s upcoming return to the tongue-in-cheek crime drama genre that he made his name on, has been renamed “Bush” and now STX has acquired the U.S. rights to the project.
A very impressive cast including Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding and Michelle Dockery lead the story which explores the collision between old money in Europe and the modern marijuana industrial complex when a very British drug lord tries to sell off his empire to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires.
Ritchie is directing, producing, and co-wrote the script with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson. The film is currently in post-production and is expected to launch theatrically either late this year or early 2020.
Ritchie also directed Disney’s live-action “Aladdin” which is due in cinemas in May.
