Guy Ritchie To Direct RocknRolla (Blog)

Pic harks back to Ritchie's early films "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch," fast-paced dramas that had strong ensembles, attitude and low budgets. In "RocknRolla," a Russian mobster orchestrates a crooked land deal, putting millions of dollars up for grabs and attracting all of London's criminal underworld. A dangerous crime lord, a sexy accountant, a corrupt politician and a band of petty thieves are among those double-crossing one another. Pic's budget will be under $20 million.
The russian mob is by far my favorite sliver screen crime orginization. The accent is so sinister and the cold disposition of russian gangsters is a chilling delight. Mob movies do not excite me that much, but in the hands of Ritchie they are cinematic magic.
I am glad to see Ritchie do a reasonably low budget high octane film. He is very talented and has a great style about him. I would like to see him do more films, but waiting to put out something of quality may not be a bad strategy either. Almost everyone is screaming that Madonna not be in this film, and I think it would be best for their marriage and his art if she was absent from this work. This project looks cool as hell and the title bleeds macho.
