As Los Angeles theaters prepare to reopen this weekend, Guy Ritchie’s latest action-thriller Wrath of Man has been set for release on April 23, Collider has exclusively learned.

Jason Statham stars in the heist movie alongside Josh Hartnett, Scott Eastwood, Holt McCallany, Jeffrey Donovan, Laz Alonso, Raul Castillo, Niamh Algar and Post Malone.

The film is based on the 2004 French action-thriller Le Convoyeur, which followed a security guard who has an ulterior motive when he takes a job working for an armored truck company. The revenge-driven remake follows a mysterious man named H (Statham) who goes to work for an armored truck company that is responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week.

Miramax produced Wrath of Man with MGM, which means the film will be distributed by United Artists Releasing. It will arrive in theaters just one week after Mortal Kombat (which will also be available on HBO Max) and two weeks before Disney unveils Marvel’s Black Widow, so it does have a window to do brisk business on the big screen.

Miramax CEO Bill Block and Andrew Goluv produced the film with Ivan Atkinson, who co-wrote the script with Ritchie and Marn Davies. Wrath of Man serves as Ritchie’s follow-up to The Gentlemen, and the director has already re-teamed with Statham (and Hartnett) on another movie titled Five Eyes.

Ritchie is coming off the global success of Aladdin, while Statham is riding hot off the Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw as well as The Meg, and fans are eager to see their latest collaboration following films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Wrath of Man sounds right up my alley, and I suspect I won’t be alone on that front, as these kinds of heist movies always seem to find an audience.

Gina Rodriguez, Scott Eastwood, Manny Jacinto and Clark Backo will also star in the project that will be directed by Jason Orley (Big Time Adolescence) from a script by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger.

The story follows Emma (Slate) and Peter (Day), who thought they were on the precipice of life’s biggest moments — marriage, kids and houses in the suburbs — until their respective partners dumped them. In their 30s and terrified they have missed their shot at happily ever after, Emma and Peter are horrified to learn that their partners have already moved on. With no prospects on the horizon and the threat of dying alone hanging over their heads, they hatch a desperate plan to put an end to their exes’ new relationships and win them back.

Jami Gertz, Jordan Carlos, Midori Francis, Mason Gooding, Isabel May and Luke David Blumm round out the movie, which is due to begin shooting early next month in Atlanta.

Scott Eastwood – Eventually, The Dust Shall Settle

Scott Eastwood – Eventually, The Dust Shall Settle

Fate hangs like an invisible tapestry, woven together by the cosmic forces that may be. Whether or not this divine textile cloaks human will, of course, is an eternal question, and one which we’ll perhaps only have clarity on as the curtain makes its final call. The dream of seeing yourself on the silver screen, of your likeness writ large on celluloid, remains a dream as prevalent in the City of Angels as its taco trucks or tummy tucks. For a young Scott Eastwood, the vision of cinematic stardom perhaps seemed not a dream, but a destiny—no matter how far he distanced himself from that tapestry that draped presumably every early doorway.

The actor, whom we photographed near his home outside of Austin, TX, for his cover story, has a resumé that boasts a nearly two decade-long career, which has seen him in roles from Nicholas Sparks adaptations to blockbuster war flicks. When deliberating on roles to take, Eastwood remarks that he tends towards “ones you read on the page and say, ‘That’s interesting. That’s left of center. That’s an oddball thing to do.’” Since his feature film debut in 2006’s Flags of Our Fathers, Eastwood has joined Brad Pitt’s tank crew in the World War II drama, Fury, played whistleblower Edward Snowden’s boss at an NSA facility in Hawaii in Snowden, and piloted the 268 foot tall Gipsy Avenger in Pacific Rim: Uprising. It’s this attraction to extreme context and critically integral characters that Eastwood has built his career on, and his forthcoming role in Guy Ritchie’s Wrath of Man is no different.

Eastwood shakes his head at the recent experience working with the legendary outsider director. “There’s the old saying—‘never meet your heroes’—right? This totally proved that wrong. Guy Ritchie was my hero, I loved his movies, and I loved working for him. He’s an absolute gentleman, a badass, he’s funny. He thinks on his toes. It was a dream come true.” This dream come true also features additional characters, as this picture based on the 2004 French thriller, Cash Truck, reunites Scott Eastwood with Jason Statham, whom he worked with on the 2017 installment of the prodigious Fast & Furious franchise, The Fate of the Furious. Statham also sees himself back in Ritchie’s orbit 15 years after 2005’s Revolver. It all feels like a dream, but it’s arguably a recurring one.

Shrouded in mystery, the ideas, plot, and tone of Wrath of Man remain under wraps for the time being. With not even a trailer to offer a morsel of what Ritchie has been cooking, we’re left to wonder what he’s done with Cash Truck. The source material follows Alexandre Demarre, who works as a security guard for the Vigilante armored truck company. As he peddles money around, he forms a bond with his degenerate co-workers, only to reveal the real reason he works for Vigilante. Similar to the Demarre character, Eastwood remains reluctant to share much about this particular second identity. When I ask about why I keep seeing all this hubbub online about his character, he coolly replies with, “I can’t really give that away, my friend. But, I’ll say that it’s a fun ride.”

This is a bummer, as one would hope to extract a bit more info than the murkiness that can be found online, but my interviewee is content to keep it a secret. What Eastwood won’t keep secret is what sets him apart as an individual. Of course, the assumption here is the potential advantages presented by the legacy forged by his father, actor and director Clint Eastwood. But this isn’t about hereditary inductions, connections, or abnormal workarounds, and Eastwood will have you know that.
