Matthew McConaughey to Star in Guy Ritchie’s Crime-Drama ‘Toff Guys’ – The film will be similar to the the director’s previous high-energy British gangster films ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ and ‘Snatch’
Guy Ritchie has tapped top-tier talent to lead his big-screen return to British crime dramas, “Toff Guys.”.
Matthew McConaughey, Kate Beckinsale, and “Crazy Rich Asians” actor Henry Golding are set to star in the film.
“McConaughey as the inside outsider with Henry and Kate will make for a thrilling Guy Ritchie ride,” said Miramax CEO Bill Block.
The film is in the vein of the high-energy British gangster pics with A-list talent that helped launch Ritchie’s career, like “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch.”
Oscar winner McConaughey hasn’t been afraid of late to show his bad boy side in movies like “Killer Joe,” “Mud,” and the recent “White Boy Rick.” He can be seen next in “Serenity” with Anne Hathaway, followed by Harmony Korine’s “The Beach Bum.”.
Golding is having a massive year following his breakthrough role in the Warner Bros.
McConaughey is represented by CAA and Morris Yorn Barnes.
