Henry Cavill’s movies will be coming fast and furious within the next few years. A couple of images of the British actor in military garb, getting ready to start filming Stratton have been revealed.
Cavill has been training hard — what’s new? — for his new role as a Special Boat Service commando in the British military forces. The film is based on Duncan Falconer’s novels, which are a telling of his experiences during his time of service in the Royal Marines. His brother Nik, is a Royal Marine.
Despite being in incredibly good shape thanks to playing the Man of Steel, Henry has had to continue his brutal training and learn additional skills such as shooting a rifle and jumping from a plane. Henry Cavill always seems to do these tasks with good humor and understanding that it comes with the roles he undertakes.
Stratton also marks his debut as a producer. Henry and brother, Charlie Cavill formed Promethean Productions and this will be their first project. Cavill is also personally involved with the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, which supports military veterans.
Falconer himself has praised Henry Cavill and his work ethics, after meeting the star and taking him shooting. On May 5, the author posted this on his Facebook page.
“Stratton update: I took Henry pistol shooting last week. We went to a secret location in England where the SAS and SBS occasionally drop by to brush up on their speed skills. Henry’s an excellent shot for such a short period of training. His instructor is one of the best in the business. We put down a lot of rounds and used the famous Red Dot sight used by UK and US SF and, incidentally, patented by Henry’s instructor. So when you see the movie, pay particular attention to the way he holds the pistol and fires and you might notice the subtle but critical difference between a professional and someone pretending to be!”
