Jude Law makes another Gentleman's Wager

Jude Law has made another Gentleman's Wager with Giancarlo Giannini.

The 42-year-old actor got behind the wheel of a classic Delahaye 135S classic racing car in a new short film, 'The Gentleman's Wager II', to promote Johnnie Walker Blue Label blended Scotch whiskey.

The vehicle - a Walker heirloom - is the prize in a wager between Jude and Giancarlo, with the 'Talented Mr. Ripley' star facing a race through the Italian countryside to land the car.

He's delayed on the way when he stops to help Chinese actress Zhao Wei, but after leaving him a special thank you gift - a bottle of the whiskey - she later assists him in his quest.

Jude 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!"

The first 'Gentleman's Wager' film, released in 2014, saw Jude and Giancarlo enter another wager over a yacht.
