‘Aladdin’ filmmaker, Guy Ritchie, is more than keeping the career momentum going right now. The director has already begun to line-up his next project by entering in negotiations for crime thriller ‘Vigilance’.

Ritchie would write and direct the film which follows an American woman who  begins working with a London armoured car company. However, things begin to change when she finds herself in the midst of a crew that is planning a heist.

His regular collaborator Ivan Atkinson is already set to produce if a deal can be made.

Ritchie is riding the wave of success he had with Disney’s ‘Aladdin’ which saw Will Smith as the big blue cheeky genie. Only yesterday, the first trailer for his next film ‘The Gentleman’ was released. It’s very much a return to his ‘Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrells’ roots with an all-star cast including Hugh Grant, Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell and more. The film follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business forever it triggers plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him.

Hugh Grant (who plays Fletcher) and Charlie Hunnam (Pearson’s confidant) kick off the trailer with a tongue-in-cheek chat about the future of Pearson’s legacy. Fletcher says an “antagonist” (played by Henry Golding) is interested in making an offer for Pearson’s business, seemingly at all costs.
