Henry Cavill To Reunite With Guy Ritchie For New World War II Action Movie The Ministry of Unfair Warfare. Before Daniel Craig became 007 in Casino royale, when still unknown Cavill nearly landed the iconic role. But while he wasn’t allowed to play Bond, Cavill eventually landed another role as a 1960s secret agent, playing Napoleon Solo in the 2015 film version of Uncle’s Husband.
Of course by the time Cavill starred in Ritchie’s Uncle’s husband, he had already made a huge name playing another iconic character, Superman in the DCEU. In fact, over the years, Cavill has branched out in many different directions: loading his guns and arguing with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – FalloutPlaying Sherlock Holmes opposite Millie Bobby Brown in Enola Holmes and of course taking on Geralt of Rivia on The Witcher. Thanks to his willingness to take on roles in all of these different well-known properties, Cavill has now become one of the more popular actors in movies and on TV.
For his next big screen project, Cavill has chosen to reunite with his Uncle’s husband director Ritchie for an action thread set during World War II. As reported by Deadline, The Ministry of Unfair Warfare as the film is called, the true story will depict the secret combat organization of Winston Churchill and James Bond writer Ian Fleming, a group dedicated to using “indecent” tactics in waging war against the Nazis. The film’s cast also reportedly includes baby driver star Eiza Gonzalez. Ritchie and producer Jerry Bruckheimer see this as a franchise game. The shooting of the film is scheduled for January 2023.
All Henry Cavill’s Upcoming Movies and TV Shows
The Ministry of Unfair Warfare is indeed not the only spy-related project that Cavill will be involved in. In 2023, the star will join the cast of Argyllea world famous spy drama from Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn. Less action-packed will be Cavill’s upcoming dramatic film The Rosie Project, about a college professor who tries to get a new wife through a questionnaire. And in the summer of 2023 will of course return from The Witcher to Netflix.
But, of course, the biggest Cavill news about future projects out there right now is a report that Warner Bros. finally want to make Man of Steel 2, with Cavill back as Superman. For a long time it looked like Cavill’s version of DC’s greatest hero would never return to movie screens, but then he made his surprising cameo in Black Adam, and it looks like Superman is part of the future again for the DCEU. Whether Cavill’s Superman and Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam ever fight remains to be seen, but Johnson seems determined to make it happen. But first, Cavill has a date to fight the Nazis for his longtime director Ritchie in the very intriguing-sounding real-life drama The Ministry of Unfair Warfare.
