The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare adds some new names to feature alongside the already announced Henry Cavill.
Guy Ritchie’s next film was announced back in November, along with the involvement of the Artist Formerly Known as Superman, Henry Cavill. The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare will see Ritchie tackle on a World War II-era film and whilst we haven’t seen him take on that time period before, the action-espionage genre is familiar ground to him.
Following their collaboration on 2015’s spy action flick, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. it has already been announced that Cavill is returning to work alongside Ritchie, along with Baby Driver's Eiza González, no stranger to the action genre herself. Cavill will play ‘the leader of the secret combat organisation’, described as ‘a clandestine squad whose 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’.
If it sounds like a spin on Inglorious Basterds or The Dirty Dozen then the slew of newly-announced names will only add to that feeling. The Gentlemen alum Henry Golding and (the yet-to-be released) Operation Fortune co-star Cary Elwes are returning to also reunite with Ritchie but there’s lots of new faces that the director hasn’t worked with as well.
Reacher leading man Alan Ritchson is involved, as is Magic Mike’s Alex Pettyfer, The New Mutants’ Henry Zaga, Fear the Walking Dead actor, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, German actor Til Schweiger, and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ Babs Olusanmokun. That makes ten names, so not quite a Dirty Dozen. Better find two more, Guy.
Shooting is set to begin in Turkey on February 13th. We’ll bring you more on this one as we hear it.
