Hollywood action superstar Jason Statham looked dashing as he took a stroll with his co-actors on the premises of the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha.
He was filming for Guy Ritchie’s highly anticipated upcoming spy thriller, which kicked off production in the Qatari capital on Thursday. It will also shoot in Antalya, Turkey.
The Fast & Furious star is being joined by Aubrey Plaza from Parks and Recreation, as well as The Princess Bride actor Cary Elwes, on set.
It is the fifth movie that Ritchie and Statham have done together going back to Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels which made them both stars in 1998.


The currently untitled movie is a project for Miramax, 51% of which is held by the Doha-based beIN Media Group. The film also marks Ritchie’s and Statham’s second film together for Miramax following Wrath of Man.
“Guy and Jason have repeatedly impressed audiences with their collaborations, and we’re looking forward to bringing this production to the city of Doha, Qatar, a growing market in the entertainment and media space” says beIN Media Group chairman, Nasser Al Khelaifi.
