STX Punches For Guy Ritchie Crime-Comedy ‘Bush’ (Formerly Toff Guys) In Splashy $7M Deal

Deadline.com — In the biggest deal to emerge from the 2019 EFM, STX has finalized a deal for U.S. rights to Guy Ritchie’s Miramax pic Bush — formerly known as Toff Guys — for around $7M.

Multiple suitors were in the mix for the star-studded crime-comedy, whose cast includes Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding and Michelle Dockery. The deal was in the works in Berlin and has just been completed.

While the EFM was relatively sedate in comparison to a blockbuster Sundance, this is one of the biggest deals ever to come out of the Berlin market which wrapped last week. In 2016 Paramount paid around $10M for Suburbicon while TWC bought The Imitation Game for $7M in 2014.

Written by Ritchie with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson, Bush returns the Brit filmmaker to his Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch roots. But with a twist. Ritchie also produces the film which follows a very British drug lord who tries to sell off his highly profitable marijuana empire to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires. Currently in post-production, the film is likely to launch later this year.

First Official Production Still from ‘Triple Frontier’


EmpireOnline.com — With his previous three films, J.C. Chandor announced himself as a sharp and talented director, crafting compelling dramas and drawing stellar performances from A-listers. Now he’s following up Margin Call, All Is Lost and A Most Violent Year with Netflix action-drama Triple Frontier, assembling a star-studded cast including Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Pedro Pascal, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund. They play a group of former special ops soldiers facing financial hardship, choosing to resolve their situation by pulling off a heist against a notorious Colombian cartel kingpin. Safe to say, it won’t be easy.

Speaking in the new issue of Empire, Chandor explained that Triple Frontier balances action spectacle with character drama and underlying social commentary, exploring the impact that military experience has on war veterans – and the wider US population. “In my mind, the film was a play on some of those action movies with a kind of moral or ethical dilemma at their core,” Chandor tells Empire, “as well as an idea of masculinity, and what makes you valuable to yourself, your family and society.”

Mel Gibson to Star With Charlie Hunnam, Eiza Gonzalez in Action-Thriller ‘Waldo’

HollywoodReporter.com — Based on Howard Gould’s books, the AFM-bound project is being helmed by Tim Kirkby, who directed episodes of ‘Veep’ and ‘Fleabag.’
Mel Gibson is putting his action boots on once again.

The actor, last seen in 2017’s comedy Daddy’s Home 2, is teaming with Charlie Hunnam and Eiza Gonzalez for Waldo, The Hollywood Reporter can reveal.

The action-packed thriller comes from Brit filmmaker Tim Kirkby, best known for directing episodes of Veep and the pilot for Fleabag, and follows a brilliant ex-detective gone rogue. The film is based on the novel Last Looks by Howard Gould and published by Dutton. The sequel, Below the Line, is set to be released next Summer.

Andrew Lazar, Christina Weiss Lurie and Steve Shainberg will produce. IMR International is handling foreign sales, which will launch at the AFM this week. CAA Media Finance is handling the US rights.

Waldo introduces a new hero in disgraced former LAPD detective Charlie Waldo, played by Hunnam, currently living the life of a minimalist in the woods. His quiet life comes to a startling halt when he is roped back into working as a private eye to investigate the murder of an eccentric television star’s wife. Filming is set to commence in the first quarter of 2019.

Gibson can next be seen in the Venice-bowing Dragged Across Concrete, and also has Farhad Safinia’s The Professor and the Madman and Boss Level directed by Joe Carnahan in the works. Hunnam, meanwhile, has JC Chandor’s Triple Frontier, Justin Kurzel’s The True History of the Kelly Gang and Max Winkler’s Jungleland lined up, while Eiza Gonzalez has Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome to Marwen, Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel, Bloodshot alongside Vin Diesel, and Kung Fury 2.
