An exciting new series project is taking shape: cult director Guy Ritchie (54) will continue his own film of the same name from 2019 with "The Gentlemen". After previously "Divergent" star Theo James (37) was reported as the main actor, "Variety" now reports on the rest of the cast.
The Netflix series "The Gentlemen" is set in the world of the cinema, but revolves around completely new characters. Leading actor James will embody the character Eddie, the son of a British aristocrat. He discovers one of the largest marijuana plantations in Europe under his family's property.
In the hit film "The Gentlemen" Matthew McConaughey (53) played a US gangster living in England who runs a huge network of marijuana plantations. These were hidden under the castles and lavish estates of impoverished British nobles. In the upcoming Netflix series, filmmaker Ritchie will serve as series creator and co-screenwriter, who will direct the first two episodes. Filming will start on November 7th in Great Britain.
