Jason Statham says the script was in bad shape

Staham and Ritchie reunited after a 16-year hiatus with 2021’s “Wrath of Man.” “Operation Fortune” soon followed, and the two old friends fell into their usual pattern. According to the actor, changing things on a daily basis and reworking the script is a kind of signature.

“It’s a very organic way to work with what Guy does,” Statham told Entertainment Weekly while promoting their reunion pic. “He wants to change things on a daily basis, so you should watch what the story is but never get too attached to the dialogue of the day, because it really is an evolving and moving thing. So you come with an open mind and you will succeed.

Richie is also impressed with his go-to frontman, telling Empire Online in 2021 while promoting “Wrath of Man” that he and Statham have remained friends since they first collaborated on “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” in 1998. Although the two have seen their careers grow considerably since then, Ritchie said little has changed between the two.

“We have been separated for 15 years? It’s like we did ‘Lock, Stock’ 15 days ago,” he said. “Our relationship is the same as it was the first time I worked with him; we still play chess a lot.
