'Wrath of Man': Jason Statham appears in poster for Guy Ritchie film

March 25 (UPI) -- MGM is giving a glimpse of the new film Wrath of Man.

The studio shared a poster for the action thriller Thursday featuring Jason Statham.


The image shows Statham looking pensive while wearing a three-piece suit. His face and hands are cut and bloodied.

Wrath of Man is based on the 2004 movie Le Convoyeur, written and directed by Nicolas Boukhrief. The new film stars Statham as Harry, a new cash truck security guard who surprises his co-workers by unleashing precision skills during a heist.

"The crew is left wondering who he is and where he came from. Soon, the marksman's ultimate motive becomes clear as he takes dramatic and irrevocable steps to settle a score," an official synopsis reads.

Wrath of Man is written by Guy Ritchie, Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies, with Ritchie also serving as director. The film co-stars Scott Eastwood, Holt McCallany, Post Malone and Josh Hartnett.

The new movie will mark Statham and Ritchie's fourth collaboration together, following Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and Revolver.


The first Wrath of Man trailer will be released Friday. The film opens in theaters May 7.
