Malaysian actor Henry Golding is on a roll! After landing his first acting role in the box office hit “Crazy Rich Asians”, the 31-year-old actor has been receiving plenty of acting offers since then!
“Sherlock Holmes” director Guy Ritchie has tapped the Sarawakian actor to star in his latest British crime dramas “Toff Guys” where he will be starring alongside Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey and People’s Choice nominee Kate Beckinsale.
“McConaughey as the inside outsider with Henry and Kate will make for a thrilling Guy Ritchie ride,” said Miramax CEO Bill Block as quoted by Variety.
Ritchie will be directing based on the script which he co-wrote with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson. Both writers had previously worked with Ritchie on “Sherlock Holmes” movie series.
The story of “Toff Guys” explores the collision between European “old money” and the modern marijuana industry. It follows a British drug lord attempting to cash out on his highly profitable empire by selling it off to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires.
Golding also slated to star in Paul Feig’s holiday feature “Last Christmas” and an upcoming indie drama “Monsoon”.
