Henry Cavill to Produce & Star in ‘Warhammer 40,000’ Franchise

written by Jasper XVIII.XII

After exiting two huge projects, Henry has now set his eyes on another epic project, an adaptation of the Warhammer 40,000 game! Amazon Studios has secured global rights to it and adaptations will span across TV series, films, and likely games and animation. This is very exciting, especially we know how Henry nerds out when it comes to these things he loves, and now he gets some kind of control on the adaptation!

DEADLINE – Amazon Studios has made it official, confirming that it has secured global rights to the Warhammer 40,000 game from Games Workshop for Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) to star in and executive produce the franchise across all Amazon Studios productions. The agreement encompasses rights to the universe across TV series, film and likely games and animation.

Since launching nearly 40 years ago, the Warhammer brand has expanded through GAW’s miniatures, sourcebooks, tabletop games, animations, novels, a wealth of licensed material and video games.

Warhammer 40,000 is set in the far future, where humanity stands at the edge of what might be its brightest future, or its darkest age. The threats to humankind’s empire are many: traitors driven by the fires of ambition, alien empires sworn to reclaim the stars and the corruption of reality by malevolent gods.

Warhammer 40,000 has captured the imagination of fans of all ages, from all walks of life, and all over the world,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon and MGM Studios. “We are excited to work with Henry, Vertigo Entertainment, and Games Workshop across our Amazon entertainment businesses on this brilliant, immersive franchise for our global customers to experience for years to come.”

Did someone say Henry Cavill in a rom-com? Well, you’re winning. Henry has signed on to star in the romantic-comedy, The Rosie Project! Filming is not expected to start until early 2022, due to the Enola Holmes sequel and Argylle lined up to shoot this year.

DEADLINE – Even after signing on to a Highlander reboot and Matthew Vaughn’s next spy action pic, Henry Cavill doesn’t look like he’s done setting up his future dance card as Deadline has confirmed that he is set to star in The Rosie Project.

Steve Falk will write and direct the film, which follows an unlucky-in-love university professor who creates an elaborate questionnaire in an effort to find a wife and meets an unconventional woman who doesn’t match any of his “requirements,” but might be the perfect woman for him.

Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan will produce.

written by Jasper IX.VII

Here comes the latest addition to the Henry-Cavill-as-a-spy cinematic universe! Henry is part of an all-star cast for Matthew Vaughn’s next project, Argylle!

DEADLINE – Argylle, which Vaughn will direct and produce via his banner Marv, will star Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena and Samuel L. Jackson.

Pop star Dua Lipa will make her acting debut on the project and will provide original music for the title track and score.

The film, based on the soon to be launched spy novel Argylle from author Ellie Conway, follows “the world’s greatest spy” ‘Argylle’ as he is caught up in a globe-trotting adventure.

The movie will be the first of at least three films in the franchise and is set in America, London and multiple locations across the world.

Matthew Vaughn commented: “When I read this early draft manuscript I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming’s books of the 50s. This is going to reinvent the spy genre.”

Zygi Kamasa, CEO of Marv added: “We are delighted that we will be starting our fourth, and by far the biggest, feature film production since the start of the global pandemic. It demonstrates both our desire to scale up our production activity and our ambition to continue to launch new franchises beyond the Kingsman series of films.”
