British actor Henry Cavill has become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood in recent years and, while he is currently best known for playing the role of Clark Kent aka Superman, he also has plenty of other movie projects lined up for the coming years. One of the movies that we were supposed to see Henry starring in, is the new movie Stratton, which was just a week or so away from shooting, before Cavill decided to pull out of the project due to some creative differences.
Co-founder of GFM Films, Guy Collins, told ScreenDaily, "After securing many distribution deals ahead of the market, we had a really good Cannes and had closed more deals ahead of production next week. But just before leaving Cannes last Friday we were informed by the production company that they wanted to push the start date back by around three weeks to finalise some additional casting and make some further fixes to the script."
He added, "Then, during several meetings this week in London with both sets of producers including Henry Cavill, he told us he has decided not to shoot this script at this time. He had a different vision of what the film should be to us and the production team and wanted to delay production until September and shoot a different story and script."
Meanwhile though, we will get to see Henry Cavill on the big screen later in the year, when he appears in the new movie The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which is set to hit the big screen on August 14 in both the US and the UK.
