Guy Ritchie wrote this remake of the 2004 French movie Le Convoyeur, recruited his long-time collaborator Jason Statham and now MGM has released the first trailer for Wrath of Man.
This is the fourth time Statham and Ritchie have worked together.
During a brutal attempted heist on the cash-truck he is driving, a new driver with the company demonstrates a particular set of skills that saves the day. His colleagues are left wondering who he is, where he came from, and where he picked up these skills. As the aftershocks from the failed heist ripple out, his ultimate motives become clear as an unstoppable chain of events is triggered.
Alongside Statham, the ensemble roster for the film includes Josh Hartnett (Inherit the Viper), Scott Eastwood (The Fate of the Furious), Holt McCallany (Mindhunter), Jeffrey Donovan (Let Him Go), Laz Alonso (The Boys), Raul Castillo (Army of the Dead), Niamh Algar (Censor) and Post Malone (Spenser Confidential).
This project marks the latest collaboration between Ritchie and Statham, who have previously worked together on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and Revolver.
Wrath of Man is written and directed by Ritchie, who is currently in production with both Statham and Hartnett for the upcoming global spy film Five Eyes. The film is produced by Ivan Atkinson, Bill Block and Andrew Golov. Miramax acquired remake rights to the 2004 original French movie Le Convoyeur from StudioCanal for the project.
Wrath of Man will open in cinemas on May 7th.
