MGM has released the first-look trailer for Wrath of Man, the English remake of the French film Le Convoyeur from director Guy Ritchie and led by action star Jason Statham. The pair haven’t worked together since 2005’s Revolver.
Wrath of Man’s cast also includes Holt McCallany, Jeffrey Donovan, Josh Hartnett, Laz Alonzo, Raúl Castillo, Deobia Oparei, Eddie Marsan, and Scott Eastwood. From the trailer it seems to be more of a straight action film rather than a gangster comedy with action elements, something that has been Ritchie’s calling card since Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.
Guy and Jason are already filming a second project with the spy film, Five Eyes, currently in production.
MGM has swooped-in to take the vacant spot on May 7, 2021 for Wrath of Man after Disney moved Black Widow to a hybrid release on July 9, 2021.
A mysterious and wild-eyed new cash truck security guard (Jason Statham) surprises his coworkers 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.
