Guy Ritchie will be reunited with action-thriller actor Jason Statham (The Transporter; Fast & Furious) in an upcoming untitled film which will kick off production in Doha this Thursday, January 14 as reported in Deadline Hollywood. Joining Statham are British rapper Bugzy Malone (The Gentlemen), Aubrey Plaza (Parks And Recreation), and Cary Elwes (Stranger Things).

This will be Ritchie and Statham's second movie together for Miramax following Wrath Of Man. The production is set to also shoot in Antalya, Turkey.

Ritchie will direct and produce from a screenplay written by Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies. Atkinson will also produce. Bill Block will produce for Miramax, which is also fully financing the film.

“Guy and Jason have repeatedly impressed audiences with their collaborations, and we’re looking forward to bringing this production to the city of Doha, Qatar, a growing market in the entertainment and media space,” commented beIN Media Group chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

“The film marks our third collaboration with Ritchie, adding to our expanding list of nearly 20 projects having been released or currently in production since beIN’s acquisition of Miramax – a testament to our continued success achieving the target goals we set forth for the studio’s evolution while remaining committed to prioritizing investments in innovative and culturally relevant films.”

In the film, MI6 guns-and-steel agent Orson Fortune (Statham) is recruited by a global intelligence agency 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 Sarah Fidel, 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 Greg Simmonds.
