Henry Cavill and Eiza González will star in the World War II action espionage film ‘The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare’, directed by Guy Ritchie.
Jerry Bruckheimer production, plans to become a series, next January Turkey to start shooting, focusing on the origins of the British Army Special Forces SAS.
‘The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare’ is written by Guy Ritchie and Arash Amel (‘A Private War’). It is based on “Ministry of Ung gentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill’s Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Ops” by former war correspondent and author Damien Lewis.
The story is about 1939, when France fell into the hands of the Nazis and the then British Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced that Britain would resist the German army’s attack.
To defeat the seemingly unstoppable German War Machine, he decided to stop fighting under the accepted gentlemanly rules of engagement and quickly and secretly developed a special military unit the world had never seen before, the first British covert action unit – made up of survivalists, free-thinkers, misfits and downright criminals.
With a wide range of skills, they were able to penetrate behind enemy lines with complete autonomy and, in defiance of the rules of war, became the first “deniable” agents of the Special Operations Directorate, the first to be given a real “license to kill” and to win important victories in the war against the Nazis. They achieved important victories in the war against the Nazis.
Cavill plays the leader of the squad and González plays a sniper with extraordinary spy skills.
