Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham’s latest teamup, after the $100M+ success for Wrath of Man, has just landed a brand new title and release date. The spy film formerly known as Five Eyes will open in theaters on January 21st 2022. And when it does, it’ll be known as Operation Fortune.
Statham leads the way as an MI6 agent who teams with a CIA operative played by Aubrey Plaza to stop the sale of advanced weaponry after being recruited by the Five Eyes network.
The rest of the cast includes a number of Grant regulars, including Josh Hartnett who recently played a role in Wrath of Man, and Hugh Grant who had a flashy part to play in The Gentlemen. They’re joined by Cary Elwes and rapper Bugzy Malone.
Ritchie has been on quite a roll, with every film he’s done since Aladdin proving to be a hit. It’s like getting the rub from Disney helped reinvigorate his career, or perhaps it was going back to his crime-thriller roots, something Statham was a key part of.
From Director Guy Ritchie, Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre stars Jason Statham, Aubrey Plaza, Josh Hartnett, Cary Elwes, Bugzy Malone, and Hugh Grant.
