Much as I like Cavill, and I do highly rate him, I can not see this project ending up as anything other than like the World of Warcraft movie… or perhaps the Mutant Chronicles movie.
I'm sure you've all heard by now: the perpetually jilted and criminally mistreated Henry Cavill is working on a Warhammer 40k show to be aired on (but apparently and thankfully not produced by) Amazon Prime.
I don't understand how studios have kept dropping the ball with this guy, as he's the total package when it comes to a star: he's handsome, in peak physical shape, a great actor, passionate about the roles he takes, and is loves by the fans on camera and off! How has a studio not just said, "let's take this guy and use him to print money."??
Whatever. He's producing, and the way I hear it the gal he's dating is the head of the company that secured the rights to 40k (smartly before going to Amazon).
Knowing a real fan is in control gives me hope. After seeing so many established, well-loved franchises left lying face down in the dirt by the big studios, I think I feel something I haven't felt in years: a tiny glimmer of hope!
