The film, set around the modern marijuana industry, follows a British drug lord attempting to cash out on his highly profitable empire by selling it off to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires. Ritchie has penned the script along with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson.
Speaking about signing the film, Hunnam was quoted as saying by IndieWire, "When I read the script, it’s sort of vintage Guy Ritchie. I grew up on Snatch and Lock, Stock (and Two Smoking Barrels), so when he sent me this script and invited me to be a part of it, I just jumped at the chance.”
The film is due for release on 1 January 2020 in the UK.
Ritchie's earlier film was the live-action remake of Aladdin, with Will Smith as Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. Although the film grossed over $1 billion worldwide, becoming the sixth highest-grossing film of 2019, it received mixed responses from critics.
Camille Vasquez, who serves as one of Johnny Depp's attorneys in his defamation fight with ex-wife Amber Heard, discredited Heard's abuse accusations.
