Today, Prime Video announced they will premiere Guy Ritchie’s new action-comedy, spy thriller Operation Fortune: Ruse De Guerre exclusively across the UK, Ireland and France on 7 April 2023.

In Operation Fortune: Ruse De Guerre, superspy Orson Fortune (Jason Statham) must track down and stop the sale of a deadly modern technology wielded by billionaire arms broker Greg Simmonds (Hugh Grant). Reluctantly teamed with some of the world’s best operatives (Aubrey Plaza, Cary Elwes, Bugzy Malone), Orson recruits Hollywood’s biggest movie star, Danny Francesco (Josh Hartnett) to help them on their globe-trotting undercover mission to save the world.

The film is directed by Guy Ritchie, from a screenplay by Ritchie and frequent collaborators Ivan Atkinson & Marn Davies. The producers are Ritchie, Atkinson, and Bill Block.

Operation Fortune: Ruse De Guerre will join the thousands of TV shows and movies in the Prime Video catalogue, including Amazon’s Global Original films such as: Shotgun Wedding, Without Remorse and Thirteen Lives, as well as UK produced Amazon Original films: How to Date Billy Walsh, a British high school romantic comedy film; and Gassed Up, a London based action thriller film.
