Guy Ritchie takes a slight turn with the upcoming Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre, taking on a spy thriller, but with some of his familiar collaborators.

Jason Statham stars as “super spy” Orson Fortune, who’s tasked with tracking down and stopping the sale of deadly new weapons tech that billionaire arms broker Greg Simmonds has. This Greg bloke is played by Hugh Grant, who appears to be munching on the scenery in much the same way that he did in Ritchie’s The Gentlemen – and that was a joy to behold!

Aubrey Plaza, Cary Elwes, Bugzy Malone and Josh Hartnett also star.

Ritchie didn’t write this one, but the trailer bears a lot of his hallmarks – see for yourself just below.

Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre is set to hit Aussie cinemas on January 22, 2022.
