London, May 1 (IANS) British director Guy Ritchie is turning his back on directing gangster films. He’s reportedly working on a musical movie.
Rithcie is well known for his crime projects such as “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch” but he’s set for a departure from the tried-and-tested genre and is working with movie actor Jason Statham on a singing movie, reports contactmusic.com.
“Guy and Jason are collaborating closely on this top secret musical project. They’re well into development and realise they’re probably going to get a lot of stick,” said a source.
“But Guy’s of the opinion that people have been having a pop at him throughout his career, so he couldn’t care less. He wants to do something audacious and a musical is just that,” the source added.
