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.
