Acclaimed British director, Guy Ritchie will step behind the camera for his latest effort, a gritty Brit-styled drama called, Toff Guys. Ritchie is one of the most unique visual storytellers of today, one who has injected his own unique spin to the films he’s made.
Although the critical response has often times being mixed, there’s no denying the impressive body of work and the versatile stories he has managed to bring to life on the big screen. From underworld drama comedies like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch to fantasy flicks like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword to stylish espionage thrillers like The Man from U.N.C.L.E to actioners like Sherlock Holmes, Ritchie is undoubtedly versatile.
For his latest effort, Guy Ritchie looks to return to British styled drama with Toff Guys. The story will reportedly centre on a British drug lord attempting to cash out his empire by selling the entire operation to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires.
The premise seems intriguing and also something that’s right up Ritchie’s wheelhouse. He does after all have a penchant for underworld and crime stories like RockNRolla and Revolver. But it may be a while before we see Toff Guys come to life on the big screen.
Nevertheless, despite the wait, we will still get to see Ritchie’s latest project next summer. The director is now at work at Disney for the live-action adaptation of Aladdin with Will Smith. That film will arrive in cinemas in end May 2019.
