Matthew McConaughey, Kate Beckinsale, and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) are set to star in Guy Ritchie’s new film, Toff Guys, says Variety. Ritchie will direct, produce and he wrote the script with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson.
In Toff Guys, Ritchie will explore the collision between old money European wealth and the modern marijuana industrial complex with new gang entrants swarming.
Miramax paid $30 million for the worldwide rights to the film at the Cannes Film Festival. At the time, the company said that Ritchie will provide his signature hyper-real, high energy, and narratively intricate style to the piece, creating a universe full of distinctive, richly-observed, and unforgettable characters.
“Movies like ‘Snatch’ and ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ launched Guy’s career and opened up a new genre to audiences. We are thrilled to work with a master filmmaker in his element who is committed to delivering a super fun kick ass theatrical experience,” Miramax CEO Bill Block said previously.
Production is set to start this fall in England.
Guy Ritchie is currently working on Disney’s Aladdin. McConaughey and Beckinsale previously starred together in the 2003 romantic comedy, Tiptoes.
