Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels stars Jason Statham, Jason Flemyng and Dexter Fletcher reunited Thursday night – 25 years after the film’s release.
The trio, who respectively starred as Bacon, Tom and Soap in the Guy Richie film, enjoyed a mini-reunion when they attended a screening of Dexter’s new film Ghosted at London’s Ham Yard Hotel.
While Hollywood hardman Statham, 55, has many features of his former appearance, Flemyng, 56, and Dexter, 57, were barely recognizable from their appearance in the iconic gangster movie, in which they played the three leading roles.
During their reunion, the trio was dressed in contrasting ensembles ranging from dressy to trendy as they happily posed together during the screening.
Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels followed the story of a man and his friends who lose a poker game to a powerful mobster and must hatch a game to repay the debt.

Also present at the bash was Jamie Oliver, who was cooking up a storm for the all-star attendees – much to Dexter’s delight when he stole a taster.
Hollywood superstar Paul Rudd joined the fun alongside Lady Victoria Hervey, who was typically scantily clad in a sassy, see-through bodice.
Support for her husband was Dexter’s wife Dalia Ibelhauptaitė, a Lithuanian opera director. The couple has been married since 1997.
In a bizarre addition to the guest list, Love Island star Coco Lodge and Too Hot To Handle’s Nicole O’Brien—who were no doubt giddy to rub shoulders with the A-list—came from the depths of reality TV.
This year’s Love Island finalists Will Young and Jessie Wynter also competed.

Ghosted is an American romantic comedy action-adventure film directed by Dexter and written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers from a story by Reese and Wernick. The movie stars Chris Evans and Ana de Armas.
Dexter retired from acting to get behind the camera, making his directorial debut in 2021 with Wild Bill before earning critical acclaim for Eddie The Eagle, starring Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman and Christopher Walken.
He was also the director behind the Oscar-winning Elton John biopic Rocketman.
Flemyng, who also starred in Guy’s follow-up hit Snatch, transitioned from film to TV after admitting he struggled with failed projects.
In 2004, he stated, “Of the 40 feature films I’ve made, 15 haven’t made it to the screen and have only ever been seen by cast and crew…

“It’s very frustrating when a movie you really believe in goes unseen. That’s not a problem with television. If you’re a painter, you don’t paint a picture and then stick it under the bed, you want people to see it.”
In 2020, Flemyng revealed that the stars of the film are still in touch, saying, “Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrel’s WhatsApp group is still quite active…
“Success is very close, so that kind of family we had with Guy and (producer) Matthew Vaughn and Stath (Jason Statham) and Nick Moran and Vas Blackwood and all those guys — and Dex (Dexter Fletcher), of course.”
Speaking of Dexter’s success, he said, “He was always the best actor and I’ll tell you why – and I think I’m pretty good at it too – we’re so used to doing bullshit that if you give us some bullshit gives, we’re working on it!’
