Henry Golding is booked and busy, nabbing another leading role; this time in Guy Ritchie’s Toff Guys, opposite Kate Beckinsale and Matthew McConaughey.
Guy Ritchie’s follow up to Disney’s Aladdin will have him going back to his roots with another British crime-drama. Golding, Beckinsale and McConaughey will topline the crime-drama for Miramax.
The film is expected to be in the same vein as Ritchie’s previous ventures Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch.
Ritchie will direct and produce from a script he wrote with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson. The story explores the collision between European “old money” and the modern marijuana industry. It follows a British drug lord attempting to cash out on his highly profitable empire by selling it off to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires.
Information is limited, but it appears that Golding will star as the British drug lord alongside Beckinsale, while McConaughey will play a member of the Oklahoma billionaires.
Beckinsale and McConaughey recently had films premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Farming and White Boy Rick, respectively. White Boy Rick is currently in theatres, and Farming has yet to be slated for a release.
Golding currently has two films in theatres, Crazy Rich Asians and A Simple Favor. Golding recently signed onto Last Christmas, a romantic-comedy scripted by Emma Thompson, directed by Paul Feig.
