Guy Ritchie‘s next movie already has quite the duo set to lead it, as the upcoming film will star both Natalie Portman and John Krasinski.
Deadline is reporting that Portman and Krasinski will be starring in Ritchie’s latest picture, which will be produced for Apple Original Films by Skydance Media, Vinson Films, and Project X Entertainment. Titled Fountain Of Youth, the movie will be written by James Vanderbilt.
According to the outlet, it will revolve around “two estranged siblings who partner on a global heist to find the mythological Fountain of Youth.” The journey has the siblings using their historical knowledge to follow clues “on an epic adventure that will change their lives … and possibly lead to immortality.”
Reportedly, the film’s script “blew execs away,” while Ritchie and Krasinski were both interested in the project since last spring. As the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes put things on hold, the director and actor apparently both committed once the strikes ended. Filming is planned to take place in the first quarter of this year.
