Hugh Grant Joins Guy Ritchie’s Toff Guys

Published

on

Love Actually star Hugh Grant has joined the cast of Guy Ritchie’s forthcoming gangster feature Toff Guys.

The picture has been penned by Ritchie, along with his creative partners Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson. Toff Guys will be a quiet return to the comfort of a Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels-style crime drama for Ritchie, after the very public embarrassment of last year’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – Ritchie’s Charlie Hunnam-starring medieval fantasy flick lost $150 million after flopping at the box office.

Toff Guys will pit old-money European wealth against the modern weed industrial machine, as new gang leaders face off against the sophisticated crime lords of days past.

Hugh Grant joins an all-star ensemble which already boasts Matthew McConaughey, Kate Beckinsale and Crazy Rich Asians‘ Henry Golding. Grant will portray Fletcher, a British gossip journalist – ironic, given Grant’s participation in the Leveson Inquiry.

Hugh Grant was last seen in Paddington 2, which scored $227 million internationally. No release date for Toff Guys has been set.
