Henry Cavill & Amazon Team Up On Warhammer 40K Series [Updated]

December 16, 2022 by brennon

Henry Cavill is reportedly closing in on a deal alongside Amazon to produce a Warhammer 40,000 series. It's been long rumoured that there was something happening behind the scenes and it seems like now, the future is grimdark.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the talks have been going on for some time and Amazon has been through months of negotiations and fending off other companies to get their hands on the rights. The deal has yet to be closed but it seems like it's going to end up becoming a reality in the near future.

It looks like Cavill is going to be starring and executive producing whatever show ends up coming out of this deal and whilst there are no writers or showrunners mentioned yet, it seems like Vertigo Entertainment are going to be coming on board as well.

"I have loved Warhammer since I was boy, making this moment truly special for me. The opportunity to shepherd this cinematic universe from its inception is quite the honour and the responsibility,” said Henry Cavill. “I couldn’t be more grateful for all the hard work put in by Vertigo, Amazon and Games Workshop to make this happen. One step closer to making a nigh-on lifelong dream come true."

Cavill has long talked about his love for Warhammer 40,000 and the work on his Adeptus Custodes army. You wouldn't have guessed from the images he posts showing what he's reading or the interviews where he's talked about the grimdark future.

Will we see that long-awaited Eisenhorn series with Cavill at the helm? Perhaps it will focus on a different part of the 40K universe? I certainly think sticking to Inquisitors and investigations on Imperial worlds is the best way to go for now!

Now, if he can just get fellow Warhammer fan and actor Rahul Kohli (Midnight Mass, The Haunting Of Bly Manor) in the mix, I think I would be very happy indeed.

What do you make of the news?
