Panerai will accompany Jason Statham on his next cinematic adventure, an action thriller formerly known as Five Eyes, which will also star another friend of the brand, Hugh Grant
Production of the new film, directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, is still in its early stages, but it has been reported that it is currently shooting in Doha, Qatar and that the cast will soon move to Turkey. The film features Statham, portraying an MI6 agent recruited by a global intelligence alliance called “Five Eyes” to track the sale of a deadly new weapons technology threatening worldwide turmoil.
This project is the latest collaboration between the British actor and the film director, who worked together on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and Revolver, followed by the upcoming action thriller Wrath of Man.
For this unique opportunity, Panerai furnished the talent and film director with several remarkable timepieces, including the Submersible Goldtech™ 42mm (PAM1164) and the Submersible Carbotech™ 47mm (PAM1616), which is prominently featured in images captured by photographer Daniel Smith.
