Henry Cavill also developing Warhammer at Amazon
Henry Cavill is also developing the live-action Warhammer series at Prime Video.
“For 30 years I have dreamt of seeing a Warhammer universe in live action,” said Cavill in December. “Now, after 22 years of experience in this industry, I finally feel that I have the skill set and experience to guide a Warhammer Cinematic Universe into life. Partnering with Natalie Viscuso at Vertigo has been a blessing beyond words, without her we might not have found the perfect home at Amazon,” he said. “And having a home like Amazon will give us the freedom to be true to the massive scope of Warhammer.”
Cavill continued, “To all of you Warhammer fans out there, I promise to respect this IP that we love. I promise to bring you something familiar. And I endeavour to bring you something fantastic that is, as of yet, unseen. Our first steps are to find our Filmmaker/Creator/Writer. Watch this space, my friends.
“I have loved Warhammer since I was a boy, making this moment truly special for me,” added Cavill. “The opportunity to shepherd this cinematic universe from its inception is quite the honor and the responsibility. I couldn’t be more grateful for all the hard work put in by Vertigo, Amazon Studios and Games Workshop to make this happen. One step closer to making a nigh on lifelong dream come true.”
