Guy Ritchie's next film might have lost its title – it's no longer called Five Eyes – but it is looking to add someone that Ritchie recently worked with. The Gentlemen's Hugh Grant (for it is he) is in talks to join Jason Statham and Aubrey Plaza in the espionage action thriller.

Ritchie wrote the film with Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies, and whatever it ends up being called, it'll see MI6 agent Orson Fortune (Statham) recruited by a global intelligence agency to track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology that threatens to disrupt the world order. Reluctantly paired with CIA high-tech expert (Plaza), Fortune sets off on a globe-trotting mission where he will have to use all of his charm, ingenuity and stealth to track down and infiltrate billionaire arms broker...

The cameras are rolling now in Qatar and Turkey, while Cary Elwes and Josh Hartnett are also in the cast. As you might expect, there's no release date on the books yet.
