Director Guy Ritchie had shot a English remake of the 2004 French film Le Convoyeur that has been re-titled as Wrath of Man, the film would be his first reunion with action star Jason Statham since the pair worked together on the long-forgotten thriller Revolver that was released back in 2005. The action-thriller also stars Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice, Sicario), Josh Harnett (Penny Dreadful, Pearl Harbor), Scott Eastwood (Fury, Fate of The Furious), Holt McCallany (Mindhunter), Niamh Algar (Raised By Wolves), Laz Alonso (Avatar), and rapper Post Malone.
We finally know when to expect a release date for Wrath of Man.
There is word from Deadline that the MGM and Miramax flick has swooped-in to take the vacated May 7-9 weekend release spot after Black Widow was moved by Disney to July 9.
Wrath of Man, written by Ritchie and Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies, follows a mysterious and wild-eyed new cash truck security guard (Statham) who surprises his co-workers during a heist in which he unexpectedly unleashes precision skills. The crew is left wondering who he is and where he came from. Soon, the marksman’s ultimate motive becomes clear as he takes dramatic and irrevocable steps to settle a score.
Despite a May release, the studio has yet to reveal a first-look trailer for the Guy Ritchie flick and there are plans to release one on Monday. Below is a teaser poster for the film.
Statham and Ritchie are currently re-teaming for the international spy flick formerly known as Five Eyes. Guy is also trying to develop a series based on his film The Gentlemen and will make a WWII movie about the first British special forces unit.
