Recently, you just can’t keep up with the changes in the creative plans of the actor Henry Cavill: he refuses the role of Geralt in the series The Witcher, then decides to return to the role of Superman, and now there is information that he is going to produce and soon play one of the main roles in the series based on the Warhammer 40K universe.
Yes, it turns out that such a series is planned on Amazon (which also recently confirmed work on the God of War series). This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter, according to which Amazon is currently finalizing negotiations with Games Workshop for the rights to film the popular franchise – after several months of negotiations and fighting with competitors who also sought to obtain the rights. Soon, Amazon itself officially confirmed to the Deadline that they are indeed preparing to shoot a TV series for Warhammer 40K.
As you know, Henry Cavill is a long-time fan of the Warhammer 40K games, and he commented on this news as follows: “For 30 years I have dreamt of seeing a Warhammer universe in live action. Now, after 22 years of experience in this industry, I finally feel that I have the skill set and experience to guide a Warhammer Cinematic Universe into life.”
The series does not yet have a showrunner or a writer, but it is already known that Amazon will shoot it together with Vertigo Entertainment.
