Henry Cavill and Eiza González will lead an upcoming WWII spy action thriller from director Guy Ritchie: more here.
Guy Ritchie’s next film has been announced and he’s heading into territory both new and old. The director’s next project will see him working on a World War II-era film, a time period which Ritchie hasn’t dabbled in before. The action-espionage genre is more familiar to him though, most notably with this year’s Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre (an apparently completed film that we’re still awaiting a release date for) and 2015’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
One of the stars of that film, Henry Cavill is returning to work alongside Ritchie in The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare.
According to Deadline, 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’.
Cavill will be joined by Eiza González, no stranger to the action genre herself. Following high-octane appearances in Baby Driver, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and Godzilla Vs Kong, the actor will be playing ‘a military sniper with extraordinary spy-craft abilities.’
It all sounds a little like a Guy Ritchie spin on Inglorious Basterds to us, and we’re intrigued to find out who else might be joining the cast in due course. Henry Cavill’s movie slate continues to stack up, demonstrating why he has chosen to step away from playing Geralt for season 4 of Netflix’s The Witcher.
