The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare (2024, D: Ritchie) S: Cavill, González, Ritchson, Golding

EXCLUSIVE: In the splashiest launch of the AFM so far, Guy Ritchie and Top Gun: Maverick producer Jerry Bruckheimer have enlisted Superman Henry Cavill and Baby Driver star Eiza González to lead their World War II action spy movie The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare, which Black Bear International has arranged financing on and is launching for world sales.

Sherlock Holmes and Aladdin filmmaker Ritchie will direct as his next film, with the project lining up a January start date in Turkey.

The movie, inspired by real events, 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.

The project was initially in development at Paramount through Bruckheimer’s first look deal, but the studio will not be distributing the film, and we understand Black Bear is in active discussions regarding U.S. distribution and international deals. This will most likely be the biggest-budget project on sale at next week’s AFM.

Man Of Steel, Mission: Impossible – Fallout and The Witcher star Cavill will play the leader of the secret combat organization. His casting comes on the heels of his surprise appearance in Black Adam and his announced return as Superman in upcoming DCU Films.

González, most recently seen in Michael Bay’s Ambulance, will play a military sniper with extraordinary spy-craft abilities. She will next be see in Netflix’s sci-fi pic The Three Body Problem and Scott Z Burns’ Extrapolations for Apple TV+.

There will be a bevvy of colorful characters, we hear, in a project which seems to have echoes of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. However, Ritchie and Bruckheimer are conceiving this one as a franchise.

The script, by Ritchie and Arash Amel (Rise), is based on war correspondent and military historian Damien Lewis’ popular book of the same name.

In the wake of Top Gun: Maverick, the year’s biggest film to date, super-producer Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise) will produce, alongside Chad Oman for Bruckheimer Films. Also producing are Ritchie’s producing partner Ivan Atkinson, and Black Bear International’s John Friedberg. Atkinson and Friedberg produced Guy Ritchie’s most recent feature, The Interpreter (working title), starring Jake Gyllenhaal. That movie is in post-production. Ritchie and Cavill previously worked together on The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Sounds awesome. I thought The Man From U.N.C.L.E was fantastic.

Either recast or keep his female costars far away from any condiments on the craft services table.

Sure.

Also want to chime in and say I ignored Man From U.N.C.L.E. since it came out, and watched it on HBO Max last month. Had no idea it was going to be so good.

OK that looks fantastic (but seeing Cavil with his tongue out like a teen doing a selfie is going to get old fast.) That said this might get my butt into a local theater

Kinda channeling Momoa at this point.

That looks like a lot of fun!

Based on the trailer, it looks like it could play a good double feature with Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds.

After doing some research on the real Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, I'd like to see a documentary on them (google Special Operations Executive). Sigmund Freud's grandson was an agent for them and they innovated a lot of weapons and techniques used today.

Looks similar to MGM+'s "Rogue Heroes" and I absolutely loved that series.

If you haven't seen it, subscribe for a month and check it out.

Free Ticket to see Early Access screening on April 13. Must use Atom Tickets. Not a premium format though. I think it’s good for whatever chains support Atom.

Code: MINISTRYEARLY

My A-List spots are booked. So I booked this at Harkins. And free is free.

They're splitting the Dolby Cinema screens with Abigail that weekend, so may have to wait until that Sunday to go.

Caught a showing of this as one of AMC's Mystery Movie screenings.

Despite the storyline's heavy stakes and the massive onscreen body count, this is pretty breezy and lightweight fare that plays like a more action-packed, but watered down version of Inglorious Basterds. Though it's based on a true story, the movie lacks any real substance and doesn't offer up anything that we haven't seen countless times before (particularly in Guy Ritchie movies), but Ritchie's slick and energetic direction keeps things moving at a mostly effective pace and the actors seem to be having fun, even if most of them could play these roles in their sleep. The two standouts in the cast are Eiza Gonzalez as the movie's lone female character and Babs Olusanmokun as Mr. Heron.

I went to see the Early Access screening tonight that some theaters were showing. Full disclosure. However, I was very tired walking in after getting off a 10 hour morning shift. But, I liked what I saw and yeah it was action packed and very breezy. It didn't take itself too seriously. I also enjoyed the bits of humor they incorporated.

I'm probably going to have to watch it again sometime in the next week or so.
