Los Angeles: Action star Jason Statham, and filmmaker Guy Ritchie are collaborating on spy thriller “Five Eyes”.
Statham and Ritchie started their movie careers together with “Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels” (1998) and have also worked on “Snatch” (2000) and the upcoming thriller “Cash Truck”.

The 53-year-old actor will play the lead in “Five Eyes” and Ritchie will direct and produce, reported Deadline.

“The Gentlemen” writers Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies have penned the screenplay with revisions by Ritchie.

Miramax will finance the project and produce it with STXfilms.

“Jason is a global box office heavyweight, and when teamed with Guy Ritchie, that’s an irresistible combination.

“It’s a thrill to be back in business with Guy, Bill and the team at Miramax after our shared success on ‘The Gentlemen’ and we believe Five Eyes is the kind of film our partners overseas will love as much as we do,” said Adam Fogelson, chairman of the STXfilms Motion Picture Group.

In the film, Statham will portray an agent recruited by the global intelligence alliance “Five Eyes” to find out and stop the sale of a deadly new weapon that threatens to disrupt the world order.

Production is set to commence in October in Europe.
