Eiza González is getting in on the action…
The 33-year-old Mexican actress and singer will star in Guy Ritchie’s next project, an untitled big-budget action film.
Gonzalez will star opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Henry Cavill in the film.
The film’s title and plot details are being kept under wraps, but the story will reportedly revolve around two extraction specialists who must plan an escape path for a high-level female negotiator.
The film is said to be laced with Ritchie’s trademark humor.
The film will see Ritchie re-teaming with Cavill, Gyllenhaal and Gonzalez after recent collaborations. The new project comes hot on the heels of April’s U.S. release of critically well-received action film The Covenant, starring Gyllenhaal, and Ritchie has only just wrapped starry WWII movie The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare with Cavill and González among the cast.
Cavill also teamed up with Ritchie on The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
The new project is due to begin filming in Spain this summer. Ritchie wrote the original screenplay, and will also produce alongside partner Ivan Atkinson, and Black Bear International’s John Friedberg, who also produced Ritchie’s last two movies.
Ritchie said: “There’s something special that happens when you collaborate with the same partners regularly: you build a shorthand and a trust that lets everybody do their best work. Jake, Henry and Eiza are all astonishingly talented, committed, and engaging actors. This is going to be an action-packed movie that is both intellectually stimulating and physically exhilarating.”
Baby Driver and Ambulance actress González will next be seen in the Benioff and Weiss series Three Body Problem for Netflix and The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare for Ritchie and Jerry Bruckheimer.
