Fresh from announcing his return as the Man of Steel, Henry Cavill will be joining forces with Guy Ritchie for The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, a World War II action spy movie.
Deadline has reported Henry Cavill and Eiza González will star in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, which Guy Ritchie is setting up to direct as his next movie. Inspired by real events, the movie 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.” Ritchie penned the script along with Arash Amel based on the book by war correspondent and military historian Damien Lewis. Deadline hears that the project includes a “bevvy of colorful characters,” and could be in a similar vein as Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. Production is expected to kick off in Turkey by January , and producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Guy Ritchie are looking at this as a potential franchise.

In addition to The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, Guy Ritchie has a number of movies on his slate. Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre, Ritchie’s spy action comedy starring Jason Statham, was supposed to have been released earlier this year but was pulled from the schedule by STXfilms and is still sitting on the shelf. It’s been rumoured that the reason has to do with the movie including Ukrainian bad guys, which the producers fear would be seen as bad taste given the ongoing war with Russia. Ritchie also has an action thriller with Jake Gyllenhaal on the way and is also set to direct the live-action Hercules movie for Disney. He’s a busy dude.
