British director Jack Scott of Ridley Scott Associates helmed the film, which “tells the story of two men who enter a wager over a priceless vintage car: the stunning Delahaye 135S classic racing car that is not only the ‘trophy’ for the wager but also a Walker heirloom, having been owned by the family since the late 1930s,” stated the press release.
The short film is “about the joy of giving and how far it can take you,” the press release added.
Discussing the short film, Law said, “I’m thrilled to be in the driving seat for the second Gentleman’s Wager film. Being back on set with Giancarlo and also having the opportunity to work with the talented Zhao, was an absolute joy. That coupled with being behind the wheel of the Delahaye 135S racing car, driving through the rolling hills of Italy and out to Monaco, well… I consider myself a lucky man!”
Johnnie Walker Blue Label premiered the film at a star-studded event hosted by Law and Giannini at a villa outside Rome on October 31.
“We are delighted to be launching The Gentleman’s Wager II today from the Johnnie Walker Blue Label brand,” said Johnnie Walker Global Brand Director, Guy Escolme. “This second film, with Jude, Giancarlo and Zhao, is the perfect continuation of the original story. Reflecting the spirit of personal progress that Johnnie Walker has always stood for, we’re excited to have made this film with such a great cast that celebrates our belief that gratitude is the ultimate expression of joy that leads to success!”
