Malaysian-British actor Henry Golding has joined the cast of Henry Cavill’s new war movie, "The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare".

It also stars Eiza González, Alan Ritchson, Henry Zaga, Alex Pettyfer, Cary Elwes, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Babs Olusanmokun, and Til Schweiger.

Principal photography is slated to begin in Turkey on February 13.

Filmmaker Guy Ritchie is directing from a script he co-wrote alongside Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, and Arash Amel.

It is based on the true story of war correspondent and military historian Damien Lewis’ best-selling book of the same name.

The movie is centered around UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill's and Ian Fleming’s secret WWII combat organization. The clandestine squad’s unconventional and ‘ungentlemanly’ fighting techniques against the Nazis helped change the course of the war and gave birth to the modern Black Ops unit.

Black Bear International is financing "The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare" and handling world sales of the project. 

Tamasy and Johnson initiated the project and sold it as a pitch to Bruckheimer and Paramount in 2015.

Jerry Bruckheimer is producing alongside Chad Oman, Ritchie’s producing partner Ivan Atkinson, and John Friedberg for Black Bear International.

Executive producers include Scott Lastaiti, Olga Filipuk, Damien Lewis, and Tamasy and Johnson.

Golding reunites with Guy Ritchie following 2019's "The Gentlemen".

He is currently in post on "The Old Guard 2" starring Charlize Theron for Netflix, the Paramount animated movie "The Tiger’s Apprentice", and Lily Rabe and Hamish Linklater’s drama "Downtown Owl" for Sony.
