According to Deadline, Hugh Grant and Josh Hartnett were the most recent additions to director Guy Ritchie’s spy thriller ‘Five Eyes’.
This is Grant’s second time working with the director after the entertaining “Crime Tycoons,” while also marking Hartnett’s first collaboration with the director.
With details on the roles yet to be revealed, the duo join previously confirmed action movie star Jason Statham.
Statham will bring protagonist Orson Fortune to life, an MI6 agent recruited by the Five Eyes global intelligence alliance to find and stop the sale of deadly weapon technology that threatens to dismantle the world order. Reluctantly working with CIA expert Sarah Fidel, Fortune sets out on a mission across the globe to find a billionaire and infiltrate his inner circle.
Ritchie is directing the production from a script signed by Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davis. Atkinson is also a producer alongside Bill Block.
STXfilms will be responsible for the global distribution of the feature film, launching the project for international buyers at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival.
