According to Deadline, British rapper Bugzy Malone has officially joined the cast of Guy Ritchie’s forthcoming international spy thriller film, reuniting him with the filmmaker, who previously worked together in last year’s The Gentlemen. He will be joining previously announced cast members Jason Statham, Aubrey Plaza, and Cary Elwes. In addition, production on the untitled film will finally begin tomorrow in Doha, Qatar. The project is also expected to shoot in Antalya, Turkey.

“Guy and Jason have repeatedly impressed audiences with their collaborations, and we’re looking forward to bringing this production to the city of Doha, Qatar, a growing market in the entertainment and media space,” Chairman of Miramax-owner beIN Media Group, Nasser Al-Khelaifi said. “This film marks our third collaboration with Ritchie, adding to our expanding list of nearly 20 projects having been released or currently in production since beIN’s acquisition of Miramax – a testament to our continued success achieving the target goals we set forth for the studio’s evolution while remaining committed to prioritizing investments in innovative and culturally relevant films.”

In the film (formerly titled Five Eyes), MI6 guns-and-steel agent Orson Fortune (Statham) is recruited by a global intelligence alliance ‘Five Eyes’ to track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology that threatens to disrupt the world order. Reluctantly paired with CIA high-tech expert Sarah Fidel, Fortune sets off on a globe-trotting mission where he will have to use all of his charm, ingenuity, and stealth to track down and infiltrate billionaire arms broker Greg Simmonds.

The film will be directed by Ritchie from a script written by Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies (The Gentlemen, Wrath of Man), with revisions by Ritchie. This project marks the latest collaboration between Ritchie and Statham, who have previously worked together on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking BarrelsSnatch and Revolver as well as the upcoming action thriller Wrath of Man.

STX will distribute directly in the US, UK, and Ireland, and STXinternational will launch sales to foreign buyers at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival. STXfilms had great success earlier this year with Ritchie’s The Gentlemen, which grossed $115 million at the worldwide box office.
