Henry Cavill will reunite with Man From UNCLE director Guy Ritchie for the new World War 2 action film The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare.
Henry Cavill is set to reunite with Guy Ritchie for the new World War 2 action film The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. Before Daniel Craig became 007 in Casino Royale, then-unknown Cavill nearly landed the iconic role. But though he didn’t get to play Bond, Cavill did ultimately tackle a different ‘60s secret agent role, playing Napoleon Solo in 2015’s movie version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E..
Of course by the time Cavill starred in Ritchie’s Man From U.N.C.L.E., he had already made a huge name for himself playing another iconic character, becoming Superman in the DCEU. Recent years have in fact seen Cavill branching out in a lot of different directions: loading up his guns and tussling with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, playing 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 tackle roles in all 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 Man From U.N.C.L.E. director Ritchie for an action yarn set during World War 2. As reported by Deadline, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare as the film is called will depict the real-life story of Winston Churchill and James Bond writer Ian Fleming’s secret combat organization, a group dedicated to employing “ungentlemanly” tactics in waging war against the Nazis. The movie’s cast will reportedly also include Baby Driver star Eiza González. Ritchie and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are conceiving this as a franchise play. The movie is set to begin shooting in January 2023.
All Henry Cavill’s Upcoming Movies & TV Shows
The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is indeed not the only espionage-related project Cavill is set to be involved in. In 2023, the star will head up the cast of Argylle, a globe-trotting spy drama from Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn. Less action-packed will be Cavill’s upcoming dramatic film The Rosie Project, about a college professor trying to land a new wife via the use of a questionnaire. And summer 2023 will of course see the return of The Witcher to Netflix.
But obviously the biggest Cavill future-project news out there right now is a report that Warner Bros. is looking to finally make Man of Steel 2, with Cavill back again as Superman. For a very long time it appeared Cavill’s version of DC’s greatest hero would never return to movie screens, but then he made his surprise cameo in Black Adam, and it appears Superman is again part of the future 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 that happen. First though, Cavill has a date to fight the Nazis for his old director Ritchie in the very intriguing-sounding real-life drama The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.
