After Lock Stock and Snatch, Guy Ritchie sort of fell off the movie world’s radar. He’s still searching for the movie that will disprove the Madonna curse and return him to his God-like pre-Swept Away status. He almost did it with Revolver, but then decided two of the characters were actually physical manifestations of Jason Statham’s character’s imagination (perhaps the lamest, most faux-high brow movie cliché in the history of movie clichés).
His new film RocknRolla opens in October and involves rockstars, the London underground, guns, and shady Russians, and stars Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, Thandie Newton, Jeremy Piven and Chris Ludaris Bridges. It looks promising and I really hope it’s good, but even if it sucks that’s not going to keep me from commando rolling around the theater and shooting people with my finger guns. Shoyne ya boots, guv? …Sorry, I know that makes no sense, but it’s the only thing I can say in a Cockney accent.
