We can always count on Guy Ritchie to round up an impressive cast for his films, and his next project will be no exception. Henry Cavill, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Eiza González are eyeing lead roles in Ritchie’s upcoming big-budget action movie.

According to Deadline, the yet-untitled project will center on two extraction specialists who must plan an escape path for a high-level female negotiator. The film will be laced with Ritchie’s trademark humor, and the rest of the plot details are being kept under wraps.

The leading trio worked with Ritchie on several occasions in the past. Cavill previously appeared in his remake of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and we’ll soon get to see him in the upcoming World War II action flick The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare alongside González. Gyllenhaal is also not a newcomer to Ritchie’s universe after having starred in his latest film The Convent.

Ritchie believes there’s something special about regularly collaborating with the same partners because it allows you to build trust that lets everybody do their best work.

“Jake, Henry, and Eiza are all astonishingly talented, committed, and engaging actors. This is going to be an action-packed movie that is both intellectually stimulating and physically exhilarating,” he said in a statement.
