Cavill snares Stratton thrillers

Henry Cavill has snapped up the Stratton action films for the first project at his new production company.

The Man Of Steel star has formed Promethean Productions with his brother Charlie and, according to Deadline, the pair have landed the adaptations of Duncan Falconer's novels.

Stratton is an SBS operative who works with the Intelligence Detachment in Northern Ireland, and is inspired by the author's military background, who writes under a pseudonym.

Henry's Promethean Productions will work alongside another production company, Amber Ltd, with the first film set in southern Italy, Rome and London.

The actor said: "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."

With eight novels in the series, Henry could have a long-running project on his hands if the first film does well.

He can next be seen in a reboot of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. which is due to be released in cinemas on August 14, 2015.
