The Ronin can independently confirm that British character actor Peter Ferdinado will be reuniting with director Guy Ritchie for his upcoming spy flick formerly, titled Five Eyes. Peter previously worked with Guy on King Arthur: Legend of The Sword. His other film credits includes Ghost In The Shell, High-Rise, Hyena, 300: Rise of An Empire, Snow White & The Huntsman, and A Field In England.
The feature follows MI6 guns-and-steel agent (Statham) who is recruited by a global intelligence agency to track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology that threatens to disrupt the world order. Reluctantly paired with CIA high-tech expert, Fortune sets off on a globe-trotting mission where he will have to use all of his charm, ingenuity and stealth to track down and infiltrate billionaire arms broker.
He joins a cast led by Jason Statham alongside others such as Aubrey Plaza, Cary Elewes, Bugzy Malone (The Gentlemen), Hugh Grant, and Max Beesley.
Guy Ritchie is a busy lad these days as his other Jason Statham film Wrath of Man is coming out next month, he’s finishing up Five Eyes, and is already developing a WWII film with Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.
