Matthew, John, Guy and Peter asked their mutual acquaintance, Trudie Styler, to invest in the production of Ritchie's second film.
Styler had seen The Hard Case, and decided that co-funding the project would be a worthwhile opportunity.
Guy Ritchie's relationship with his girlfriend JACQUI AINSLEY is heating up - the model has moved in to the filmmaker's London home.
The director, who spit from ex-wife Madonna in 2008, started dating Ainsley early last year (10) and Ritchie proved he's serious about the British beauty by taking her on holiday with his son Rocco in July (10).
The production of the film, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels was completed in about eight months.
Guy Ritchie and Jacqui Ainsley kept their social media followers excited and engaged with the ceremony behind-the-scenes in the days leading up to their wedding ceremony.
There is even a huge photo of Lourdes, Guy’s former stepdaughter, on the wall.
