Aubrey Plaza and Jason Statham Go Head to Head in Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre ...

In Guy Ritchie's latest spy action picture, Aubrey Plaza isn't Jason Statham's best employee.

"Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre" follows super spy Orson Fortune (Statham) who is tasked with deciphering a wealthy arms broker (Hugh Grant) who is behind deadly new weapon technology. Plus film star Danny Francesco (Josh Hartnett)

"Operation Fortune" will be released in theaters by Ritchie, directed by Ivan Atkinson, and co-written by Marn Davies. Miramax and Atkinson are the filmmakers of "The Gentleman" and "Wrath of Man." Lionsgate is also expected to distribute Ritchie's upcoming "Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare."

Miramax and STX Entertainment co-financed "Operation Fortune." The feature was initially scheduled to launch in January 2022, but it has since been pushed back.

Since 1998's "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels," Statham and Ritchie have collaborated on two films over two decades. Plaza, who co-stars in the independent film "Emily the Criminal," has recently honed her acting chops.

“I think, for a while, I felt like, 'Oh, I'm being put in a box,' and I don't like it,' Plaza said of being typecast in a comedy role. “But then I started to recognize it as a gift. If I convince people that I am that one thing, and then I do something completely different, it will be that much more satisfying to surprise them.”

Plaza previously said she channeled her inner James Bond in "Operation Fortune."

“I was like, if I'm going to be with Jason Statham and Guy Ritchie, that's good for me,” Plaza said of playing secret agent Sarah Fidel in a Bond film. “In those movies, the Bond character is usually mildly sexually harassing other women or being so overly flirtatious with the women.”

'I just added that because I believed that's what a female Bond character would do,' she joked.

"Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre" is only available in theaters on March 3rd.
