Preview Stills For Guy Ritchie’s “THE GENTLEMEN” Series Welcomes New Characters Into the Original Movie’s World

Netflix has today revealed a selection of first-look still from Guy Ritchie‘s (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Wrath of Man) forthcoming drama series “The Gentlemen”, inspired by the eponymous Miramax film which released in 2020 to gross over $115 million at the worldwide box office.

Set in the same world as the original film, but not starring the original characters, this new series welcomes a whole new ensemble cast into the fold: Emmy nominated “The White Lotus 2” star, Theo James, alongside Kaya Scodelario (Crawl, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City), Daniel Ings (“I Hate Suzie”), Joely Richardson (Color Out of Space, Lady Chatterley’s Lover), Vinnie Jones (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch), Giancarlo Esposito (“Better Call Saul”, “The Boys”), Chanel Cresswell (“This is England”), Michael Vu, Max Beesley (“Hijack”, Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre), Jasmine Blackborow (“Marie Antoinette”, School’s Out Forever), Harry Goodwins (In His Hands: The Emergence), Dar Salim (The Covenant), Pearce Quigley (“Detectorists”, “The Reckoning”), Ruby Sear and Peter Serafinowicz (“The Tick”, John Wick: Chapter 2).

Ritchie is at the helm of the production, serving as creator, co-writer, and executive producer, working with a script he co-wrote with Matthew Read. Ritchie also directed the first two episodes.

“The Gentlemen” centres on Eddie Horniman (James)who unexpectedly inherits his father’s sizeable country estate – only to discover it’s part of a cannabis empire. Moreover, a host of unsavoury characters from Britain’s criminal underworld want a piece of the operation. Determined to extricate his family from their clutches, Eddie tries to play the gangsters at their own game. However, as he gets sucked into the world of criminality, he begins to find a taste for it.

The series is co-produced by Netflix, Moonage Pictures and Miramax TV and has been confirmed to be heading to Netflix in 2024. In the meantime, we’ll leave you with those aforementioned preview stills.
