Cary Elwes joins Ritchie’s “Five Eyes”
(FASTNEWS | COLOMBO) – Cary Elwes has joined the the cast of Guy Ritchie’s new spy thriller “Five Eyes” at Miramax and STXFilms.
The project marks the fourth collaboration of Ritchie and star Jason Statham following “Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels,” “Snatch” and “Revolver”. It also follows on from Ritchie’s recent success with the live-action “Aladdin” and the crime comedy “The Gentlemen”.
The latter’s writers Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies return to pen this story of an MI6 guns-and-steel agent (Statham) who is recruited by global intelligence alliance ‘Five Eyes’ to find and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology by a billionaire arms broker.
He finds himself reluctantly paired with a CIA high-tech expert (Aubrey Plaza) on this globe-trotting mission. Elwes will portray Nathan Jasmine, the overseer of Statham’s mission.
Shooting kicks off this month in Turkey and Qatar.
