Guy Ritchie's RocknRolla Cast Revealed
Back in May we announced Guy Ritchie's (Snatch) next film titled RocknRolla, which will be another ensemble British gangsters flick. Today it was announced who makes up that ensemble: Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, Thandie Newton, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Idris Elba. Quite an odd eclectic mix of actors, but sounds promising.
RocknRolla will start filming in July with a budget under $20 million and in the same fast-paced, low-budget style of Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The story centers on a Russian mobster who orchestrates a crooked land deal, putting millions of dollars up for grabs and attracting all of London's criminal underworld.
Damn does this ever sound good, and now with a great cast, except for Ludacris, I'm unsure of him. I really hope we have another Snatch on our hands, because after 7 years I'm really looking forward to another incredible Guy Ritchie film.
