Production[edit]

It was announced in May 2018 that Guy Ritchie would be directing and writing a film that would be in the same spirit as Ritchie’s earlier films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. The project was unveiled at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, where Miramax acquired the distribution rights.[3][4] Filming was expected to begin in October.[5] In October, Matthew McConaughey, Kate Beckinsale, Henry Golding and Hugh Grant were cast,[6][7] with Jeremy Strong, Jason Wong and Colin Farrell joining in November. Michelle Dockery also joined, replacing Beckinsale in her role.[8][9][10] In December 2018, Lyne Renée joined the cast of the film.[11]

Filming[edit]

Principal photography began in November 2018.[12] Filming locations included West London Film Studios.

Release[edit]

In February 2019, STX Entertainment acquired distribution rights to the film.[13] It is scheduled to be released on January 24, 2020.[14]
