Who’s in Wrath of Man, and what’s it all about? Here’s everything we know about the fourth collaboration between Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham.
Action star Jason Statham and Snatch director Guy Ritchie are reuniting for 2021 movie Wrath of Man, but what’s it all about? The crime thriller reunites the pair who previously collaborated for several genre classics. In March 2021, MGM released Wrath of Man’s official trailer, which teases the May 2021 release for the English director’s 12th feature film.
In the late 90s, Statham was a 30-year-old model with no film credits to his name. However, after landing a role in Ritchie’s directorial debut (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), he quickly evolved into a proper movie star, evidenced by leading roles in The One, The Transporter, and Ritchie’s 2005 film Revolver. As Statham further developed his career, Ritchie moved away from indie crime films in favor of blockbusters like Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and Aladdin, but then returned to his genre roots with the 2020 hit The Gentlemen. With Wrath of Man, Statham and Ritchie team up for the first time in 15 years.
