Eiza González’s latest project is going global…
Black Bear has closed several international deals on Guy Ritchie’s next project, an untitled action film starring the 33-year-old Mexican actress and singer.
Black Bear will directly distribute in the UK and Ireland and sold the film to buyers including Elevation Pictures in Canada, Roadshow Films in Australia, Leonine Studios in Germany, Metropolitan Filmexport in France, Sun Distribution in Latin America and Spain, Leone Film Group in Italy, Nordisk Film in Scandinavia, The Searchers in Benelux, Vertical Entertainment in Eastern Europe and Ascot Elite in Switzerland.
Other sales include Cinemundo in Portugal, The Film Group in Greece, Forum Film in Israel, ACME Film in the Baltics, Caribbean Cinemas in the West Indies, PT Prima in Indonesia, Sahamongkolfilm in Thailand and Mockingbird in Vietnam.
Lionsgate had previously picked up U.S. distribution rights.
Plot details are being kept under wraps but the film reportedly has an element of The Expendables to it. The action film sees Ritchie reteaming with Gyllenhaal, who played the lead role in The Covenant, as well as Cavill and González, both of whom star in his movie The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.
Ritchie produces the new untitled film alongside longtime producing partner Ivan Atkinson and Black Bear’s John Friedberg.
