Henry Cavill can’t spend all his time wearing a large ‘S’ on his chest (well, I suppose he could, but he’d get a few funny looks), so he’s signed up to spend part of his time between Batman V Superman and Justice League starring in the action thriller Stratton.
Deadline reports Cavill will produce and star in the potential franchise, which is based on an eight novel series by Duncan Falconer, a form military man who writes under a pseudonym. John Stratton ‘is an operative of the SBS who works with the Intelligence Detachment in Northern Ireland’.
There’s no info on exactly which of the books the film will be based on, but it appears it’ll be an international adventure, starting out Kazakhstan and China, before moving to mainland Europe and London.
Cavill comments, “Having the opportunity to expand my horizons into filmmaking is incredibly exciting. Getting to work so closely with my brother [Charlie Cavill, who will also produce] in this venture is equally so.”
The film will be looking for funding at the American Film Market, but it doesn’t appear a director is currently attached.
