In what could end up being a bad news, good news week for Henry Cavill, following his departure from Superman it is being reported he his circling another dream project.
It is believed he has been approached about leading a TV series and possibly a film based on Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 series of table top games. The property is set in the distant future, where a stagnant human civilization is beset by hostile aliens and supernatural creatures. The models in the game are a mixture of humans, aliens, and supernatural monsters, wielding futuristic weaponry and supernatural powers. There are obvious influences from 70s and early 80s cinema that has been expanded over the years through novels and video games. If he signs on he would also be executive producers which would give him some element of creative control.
Warhammer 40,000 is a decades old games system of which Cavill is a life long fan and in recent years he has become somewhat of an unofficial brand ambassador, regularly mentioning it on social media and talking about his love for it in interviews.
