MGM Will Distribute Guy Ritchie’s ‘Cash Truck’; Jeffrey Donovan, Laz Alonso, & Josh Hartnett Join Cast
MGM now has the domestic and select international rights for Guy Ritchie’s next film ‘Cash Truck,’ Miramax’s remake of the 2004 French film ‘Le Convoyeur.’
Also, three new actors have come aboard the cast:
- Jeffrey Donovan (‘Burn Notice,’ ‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’)
- Laz Alonso (‘L.A.’s Finest,’ ‘The Boys’)
- Josh Hartnett (‘Lucky Number Slevin,’ ‘Penny Dreadful’)
They join Jason Statham (‘Fate of the Furious,’ ‘Hobbs & Shaw’), Holt McCallany (‘Sully,’ ‘Mindhunter’), and Scott Eastwood (‘Fury,’ ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’).
The premise of the action thriller is below:
“H (Statham), a cold and mysterious character, works at a cash truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week. Weaving through a suspenseful and carefully constructed narrative, the film shifts across timelines and between various characters’ perspectives.”
Meanwhile, Ritchie’s live-action remake ‘Aladdin’ made over a billion dollars this year, with a sequel in consideration. He is popular for directing Sony’s ‘Snatch,’ and both of Warner Bros.’ ‘Sherlock Holmes’ films. While he will not return for the third Sherlock movie, his film ‘The Gentlemen’ releases January 24, 2020.
Moreover, Ritchie will be reteaming with his ‘Aladdin’ cinematographer Alan Stewart, and working with production designer Martyn John (‘The White Queen,’ ‘The Last Kingdom’).
Further, filming will begin this month in London, England. Afterwards, shooting will take place in Los Angeles.
MGM’s United Artists Releasing have not set a release date as of now.
