Far­rell gets his kicks with Guy Ritchie film

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY JIM GAL­LAGHER

COLIN Far­rell will pack a real punch as he takes on the role of an MMA trainer in Guy Ritchie’s new movie Toff Guys. The Dubliner, 42, will play a char­ac­ter called Coach in the crime thriller which is said to be sim­i­lar to Lock, Stock And Two Smok­ing Bar­rels and Snatch.

In an all-star cast Matthew Mc­conaughey plays the lead role of a busi­ness­man who has built a mar­i­juana em­pire and now wants to get out. Down­ton Abbey star Michelle Dock­ery, 36, has signed up for the role of his wife and re­places A-lis­ter Kate Beck­in­sale who had to pull out of the film.

Hugh Grant is also on board as a sleazy pho­tog­ra­pher who takes scan­dalous pictures of Mc­conaughey’s char­ac­ter with the aim of black­mail­ing him. Henry Gold­ing plays a Viet­namese gang­ster.

Pro­duc­tion is al­ready un­der way but be­fore it hits our screens dadof-two Far­rell will ap­pear in Dis­ney’s re­make of Dumbo which opens in the spring.
