Cooper Replaces Cavill In “Stratton”

Dominic Cooper (“Dracula Untold,” “Agent Carter”) will replace Henry Cavill in Simon West’s European action-thriller “Stratton”.

The film is based on the first of a series of eight novels by Duncan Falconer and follows a Special Boat Service operative tracking down an international terrorist cell through Central Asia, mainland Europe and London.

Cavill abruptly exited the project, over ‘creative differences,’ six weeks ago and five days before shooting was to begin.

Gemma Chan, Austin Stowell, Tyler Hoechlin and Tom Felton also star in the film which starts shooting next week in Italy before moving to Rome and London.
