Henry Cavill and Jake Gyllenhaal are already set to reunite with Guy Ritchie in his next movie. The director is best known as the modern-day master of British gangster films, though he’s also directed the Sherlock Holmes film duology starring Robert Downey Jr. and Disney’s live-action Aladdin. Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant, which stars Gyllenhaal as a US Army Sergeant, was released in theaters on April 21 to much acclaim from critics. The director also recently wrapped filming the World War II spy-thriller, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, which stars Cavill and Ambulance‘s Eiza González.
Now, Cavill, Gyllenhaal, and González are already set to reunite with Ritchie. According to Deadline, the three actors will star in the director’s next big-budget action movie. The project is set to start filming in Spain this summer, and Ritchie expressed his excitement about reuniting with his frequent collaborators:
There’s something special that happens when you collaborate with the same partners regularly: you build a shorthand and a trust that lets everybody do their best work. Jake, Henry and Eiza are all astonishingly talented, committed, and engaging actors. This is going to be an action-packed movie that is both intellectually stimulating and physically exhilarating.
Everything We Know About Guy Ritchie’s Upcoming Movies
Ritchie’s next movie released in theaters will be The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. Based on a book of the same name, the film follows the true story of the top-secret World War II combat organization founded by Winston Churchill and James Bond author Ian Fleming whose eponymous ungentlemanly warfare was instrumental in defeating the Nazis, and also gave birth to modern black ops. The movie already acts as a spy reunion for Cavill and Ritchie after 2015’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
While Ritchie’s recently-announced action movie does not have a title, it will revolve around two extraction experts tasked with planning an elaborate escape for a high-level female negotiator. Cavill and Gyllenhaal will seemingly play the extraction experts, with González as the negotiator. With the director also having written the original screenplay, it will likely be laced with Ritchie’s signature humor, including his snappy and slang-filled dialogue, which Henry Cavill and Jake Gyllenhaal are already well-acquainted with, so they should be up to the task once again.
