Anticipation soared through the roof when it was announced last month that Guy Ritchie (The Gentlemen) and Jason Statham (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw) would reunite for the fourth time for Cash Truck and now the project is moving forward as it has been acquired by MGM, according to Deadline.

The movie will follow H, a cold and mysterious character working at a cash truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week. Weaving through a suspenseful and carefully constructed narrative, the film shifts across timelines and between various characters’ perspectives for a thrilling and mind-bending experience.

“I’m looking forward to bringing this story to life and working with Jason while he still has the use of his knees,” Ritchie said in a previous statement.

Miramax CEO Bill Block, who will produce alongside Ivan Atkinson, added: “Working again with Guy Ritchie on our second collaboration together, alongside renowned actor Jason Statham, is a privilege, and we anticipate that the tone and flavor of these two longtime friends will resurrect nothing less than a true, genre classic.”

Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad, The Fate of The Furious, Pacific Rim: Uprising) has also joined the project.

Miramax acquired remake rights to the 2004 original French movie Le Convoyeur from StudioCanal for the project.

Following his recent release of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw in theaters, Statham’s upcoming projects include Spy 2, reprising his comedic role as Rick Ford.

Ritchie and Statham previously worked together on the writer/director’s and star’s acclaimed feature-length debut Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, followed by the hit crime comedy Snatch and the minor cult crime thriller Revolver. The director would depart his crime-ridden roots in 2009 for more blockbuster fare with 2009’s hit Sherlock Holmes and its 2011 sequel, as well the big-screen adaptation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., a re-telling of the classic Arthurian tale King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin.
