Sony Pictures Releasing; Rogue; Lionsgate



The Guy Ritchie-directed crime drama "Toff Guys" is putting together a talented cast.

Matthew McConaughey, Kate Beckinsale, and Henry Golding have all claimed starring roles in the upcoming film, Variety reports. They'll help tell the story about British drug lord who is looking to sell his empire to a moneyed family from Oklahoma. The film will reportedly be similar to some of Ritchie's past work, including the 1998 comedy "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and 2000's "Snatch." He wrote the script alongside Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson.

The trio of stars has a number of big films behind them. McConaughey is an Academy Award winner for his role in 2014's "Dallas Buyers Club," and he more recently has starred in the films "White Boy Rick" and "The Dark Tower." Beckinsale's recent films include "Farming" and "The Only Living Boy in New York." Meanwhile, Golding hit it big this summer with "Crazy Rich Asians" and "A Simple Favor."

The rest of the cast has yet to be announced, but we like what we're seeing from "Toff Guys" so far. Production is scheduled to begin this fall, and a release date will be announced in the coming months.
