First Look At Guy Ritchie's Revolver
World Exclusive: The first pics from the new crime flick are here

14 December 2004  |  Written by

Swept Away. There, we've said it. We got it out of the way upfront. On Guy Ritchie's CV, filled as it is with smart and snappy crime capers, Swept Away is the sore thumb. But we'll forgive him that because as our world exclusive pics show, it looks like Britain's greatest criminal mastermind is back doing what he does best with his new movie, Revolver.

So far, Ritchie has kept schtum on the project's finer details, but we do know this: Jason Statham plays a hotshot gambler called Jake Green who is banned from every casino in town. So when he is invited to a private game with the local crime boss Dorothy Macha – a man so terrifying nobody dares beat to him – no prizes for guessing what comes next. A victory, a hit, a desperate attempt to stay alive.

So far, so Ritchie. But with Luc Besson on producing duty, and the Transporter himself bagging his first bona fide Ritchie lead, it looks like Mr. Madonna could well up the action ante this time around. Certainly, our exclusive photos of a hirsute Statham, as the gambler in way over his head and Liotta, as Macha, suggest that this could be the most visually sumptuous film of Ritchie's career.

Yes, Ritchie has his detractors, but there's an undeniable energy and edge to Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, both in the visuals and the dialogue, and this time Ritchie will, of course, be out to reclaim the crime director crown from his old friend Matthew Vaughn, who nicked it last year with Layer Cake. And it's all a million miles away from that beach flick.



We will, of course, be keeping an eye on Revolver in the run-up to release. Keep checking back for further updates.
