The two first teamed up on 1999′s Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, and will reunite on the feature written by The Gentlemen writers Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies, with revisions by Guy.

Here’s a plot summary: “The story follows MI6 guns-and-steel agent (Statham) who is recruited by global intelligence alliance ‘Five Eyes’ to track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology that threatens to disrupt the world order. Reluctantly paired with CIA high-tech expert, Fortune sets off on a globe-trotting mission where he will have to use all of his charm, ingenuity and stealth to track down and infiltrate billionaire arms broker.”

Jason is a global box office heavy weight, and when teamed with Guy Ritchie, that’s an irresistible combination. It’s a thrill to be back in business with Guy, Bill and the team at Miramax after our shared success on The Gentlemen and we believe Five Eyes is the kind of film our partners overseas will love as much as we do,” said Adam Fogelson, chairman of the STXfilms Motion Picture Group.

Principal photography is set to begin in Europe in October 2020.
