Amid the hype for Argylle, another Henry Cavill outing, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare has received a crucial update. The Guy Ritchie-directed action thriller stands a release on April 19, 2024. After months of anticipation, the news comes as a breakthrough for fans who will see the ex-Superman actor return to the big screens and call it home from spring to summer. Moreover, it will also mark the reunion of the actor-director after 2015’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Revolving around Special Operations Executive, a secret British World War II organization, the movie will adapt itself from a spy thriller book by Damien Lewis. Additionally, it will also star Alan Ritchson, Eiza González, and Cary Elwes. Cavill’s character, Gus, will stand out as the central protagonist and the leader of a group of covert soldiers. Finally, the movie’s selling point comes in its narration of the guerilla campaign following the six men.

The story would take a keynote from history by following the clandestine combat organization established by Winston Churchill and James Bond author, Ian Fleming in 1940. An enigmatic form of warfare taken up by that group eventually led to the creation of modern combat ops and thus, while paying its homage to the iconic group, Cavill’s flick would rely on the action-heavy side of the narrative.

Developed with World War II in the thick of its premise, the movie promises to be high-octane. Additionally, with Ian Fleming in the play, the movie will dive deep into the spy thriller trope. The experience would be another treat for the audience as well as the actor who had once come close to essaying the role of the 007 agent role before Daniel Craig starred in the final take.
