Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - CITY | ENTERTAINMENT -

Crazy Rich Asians break­out star Henry Gold­ing is all set to act along­side Kate Beckinsale and Matthew McConaughey in Guy Ritchie’s new film, called Toff Guys.

The story is set in the back­drop of the mod­ern mar­i­juana in­dus­try, and fol­lows a Bri­tish drug lord at­tempt­ing to cash out on his highly prof­itable em­pire by sell­ing it off to a dy­nasty of Ok­la­homa bil­lion­aires.

Ritchie, who is cur­rently di­rect­ing the up­com­ing live­ac­tion take on Aladdin, has penned the script along with his Sher­lock Holmes se­ries col­lab­o­ra­tors Marn Davies and Ivan Atkin­son.

“McConaughey as the in­side out­sider, with Henry and Kate, will make for a thrilling Guy Ritchie ride,” said pro­ducer Bill Block in the state­ment. The film is set to start shoot­ing later this year in the Eng­land.
