Ritchie shared a short video of the cast and crew as they filmed the #UntitledGuyRitchieFilm on Instagram yesterday (January 27), revealing that production's first week in Doha had wrapped and the team had since moved on to Turkey.
"Week two, Turkey. (Week one was Doha). Some old friends and some new on set," Guy wrote, tagging Statham, Plaza, Bugzy Malone, and Cary Elwes in the post.
Although the director is insisting his latest movie is as yet untitled, from what we've seen, it looks like filming is underway for the title formerly known as Five Eyes, a spy thriller starring Statham as a secret agent.
Announced last year, Five Eyes is set to follow Statham's MI6 operative as he's recruited by a global intelligence organisation called Five Eyes (natch) and tasked with infiltrating an arms broker to stop the sale of new and deadly weapons technology.
Of Ritchie and Statham's fifth project together, distributor STX said that it was "a thrill" to be back in business with the pair.
"Jason is a global box office heavy weight, and when teamed with Guy Ritchie, that's an irresistible combination," chairman Adam Fogelson said in a statement.
"It's a thrill to be back in business with Guy, Bill [Block] and the team at Miramax after our shared success on The Gentlemen and we believe Five Eyes is the kind of film our partners overseas will love as much as we do."
