Henry Cavill is set to team up again with director Guy Ritchie for a new film project! Cavill may not be starring in The Witcher anymore, but he’s sure going to be keeping himself busy with other film projects!
This new film is titled The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare and Cavill will star in the film alongside Baby Driver star Eiza González. The film is said to be a World War II action spy movie.
The movie is inspired by real events, and the story “will chart UK PM Winston Churchill’s and James Bond scribe Ian Fleming’s secret WWII combat organization. The clandestine squad’s unconventional and entirely ‘ungentlemanly’ fighting techniques against the Nazis helped change the course of the war and in part gave birth to the modern Black Ops unit.”
Cavill will play the leader of the secret combat organization. González will play a military sniper with extraordinary spy-craft abilities, and there will be “a bevvy of colorful characters.” The film is said to have echoes of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, and the hope is to build a big franchise out of it.
Yep, this is a perfect project for this creative team! Cavil and Ritchie previously worked together on the spy film The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which was so damn good! Oh yeah, I should probably mention that mega Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.
Richie will direct from a script he wrote with Arash Amel (Rise), and it’s based on war correspondent and military historian Damien Lewis’ popular book of the same name.
Cavill also has a Man of Steel sequel in the works where he will reprise his role as Superman. So, it seems like the reason Cavill is no longer going to be in The Witcher is because he’s moving on to work on these other film projects. This sounds like it’ll be a great one, though!
