Aubrey Plaza to star opposite Jason Statham in Guy Ritchie thriller

Aubrey Plaza will soon be sharing the big screen with Jason Statham.

According to Variety, actress Aubrey Plaza has officially signed on to star opposite Jason Statham in an untitled thriller.

Directed by Guy Ritchie (The Gentlemen), the untitled project finds Statham (Hobbs and Shaw) playing an agent who wends up getting recruited for a global intelligence organization. His first mission? To figure out how to track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapon that could change the world as we know it.

Statham’s character won’t be saving the world alone though. Joining him on the world-wide quest to track down the billionaire ams broker in control of the deadly weapon is a high-tech CIA expert.

Details surrounding who Plaza will portray in the upcoming action thriller are scarce for the time being.
