The incumbent cinematic Superman is getting deeper into the film business. According to Deadline, Henry Cavill has formed a production shingle called Promethean Entertainment along with his brother Charlie, and producer Rex Glensy.

The company’s first project has already been st up in the form of Stratton, an action thriller based on an eight-novel series by an author known by the pseudonym Duncan Falconer. The name comes from the main character, John Stratton, who is an operative with Ireland’s Special Boat Service (SBS) that works with Northern Ireland’s Intelligence Detachment. Cavill said of the new venture, “Having the opportunity to expand my horizons into filmmaking is incredibly exciting. Getting to work so closely with my brother in this venture is equally so.”

Filming on the new project will apparently begin this coming Spring, with Cavill in the title role. The ctor can next be seen in Warner Bros.’ The Man from U.N.C.L.E., releasing from Warner Bros. in August of 2015, followed by his next turn as the Man of Steel in Zack SNyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which opens the following March.
