'The Gentlemen' Series Adaptation Starring Theo James Ordered at Netflix

Netflix has today given a series order to the original drama series The Gentlemen based on the film by Guy Ritchie. Production will begin shortly in London, with Theo James (The White Lotus, The Time Traveler's Wife) playing the lead role.

Eddie Halstead (James) inherits his father's sizable estate only to discover that it's sitting on top of a weed empire owned by the legendary Mickey Pearson. Has this straight-up soldier got what it takes to master the dark arts of the British criminal underworld and take control of the entire operation?

Ritchie co-wrote the premiere with Matthew Read and will direct the first two episodes. Ritchie and Read will executive produce with Ivan Atkinson, Marn Davies, Bill Block, Marc Helwig and Will Gould. Miramax Television and Moonage Pictures will produce.
