After taking five years post-Snatch to return to the seedy underbelly of London crime with Revolver, director Guy Ritchie is planning a much quicker turnaround after his next film, RocknRolla. That’s according to his new lead actress Thandie Newton, who revealed to MTV News that the director is intent on turning his latest drama into a trilogy of films – and on doing it fast.

RocknRolla is one of three films and Guy’s keen to get going on that straight away,” Newton enthused. “[The second and third films in the series] are going to be excellent. I can’t wait.

“We shot incredibly quickly [on the first]. There were three weeks pre-production,” Newton added of her thoughts on how quickly the crime story could begin shooting. “He just gets on with it. He absolutely does not see challenges as intimidating.”

Also starring Gerard Butler, Jeremy Piven, and Ludacris, RocknRolla is a game of “follow the money,” said Newton, as it connects to a variety of disparate and needy characters.

But don’t expect all those characters to return for the sequel, Newton exclaimed. After all, a lot of them don’t make it through the first.

“Well I managed to get away, but a quite a lot of them died,” Newton laughed of her doomed co-stars. “[The sequel] will follow whoever’s left.”

Newton, who plays Stella, a “crooked accountant,” is the first real female lead Ritchie has written (and, no, we’re not counting “Swept Away.”) So Ritchie must have really loved Newton’s presence to invite her back right?

“Actually, I didn’t get a whole lot of feedback because Guy hires you and you get on with it,” she chuckled.
