Guy Ritchie’s movie “Operation Fortune” to premiere on Sky

The new and long-awaited movie Operation Fortune, directed by Guy Ritchie, is about to debut on Sky. The Sky Original action movie will make its TV premiere on April 17th at 9:15pm on Sky Cinema Uno (and also at 9:45pm on Sky Cinema Action), and will also be available on demand on Sky Go and to stream on NOW.

It centres on superspy Orson Fortune (played by lead actor Jason Statham), who is recruited by a world counterintelligence association to try and foil the sale of a powerful and dangerous technological weapon, called “the handle,” that is threatening to subvert world order and is owned by the wealthy arms dealer Greg Simmonds (played by Hugh Grant). Along with some of the best agents in the world, Fortune and his crew recruit the greatest Hollywood movie star ever, Danny Francesco (portrayed by Josh Hartnett), to help them in an undercover mission across the world in order to save the planet.

Aubrey Plaza (The White Lotus, Parks and Recreation), Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Stranger Things), and rapper Bugzy Malone (The Gentlemen) round up the star-studded cast.

Operation Fortune marks the return of Ritchie and Statham as a team in this amusing and adrenaline-pumping spy action comedy project, precisely twenty-five years after the premiere of 1998 movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, which saw Ritchie make his directorial debut as well as Statham’s rise as a movie superstar.
