Simon West Directs Cavill SBS Thriller

Actor Henry Cavill is teaming with filmmaker Simon West (“Con Air,” “The Expendables 2”) for the special forces thriller “Stratton” for Amber Entertainment Ltd, GFM Films and Cavill’s production company Promethean Productions.

The film is based on the first of a series of eight novels by Duncan Falconer, an ex-operative for Britain’s elite Special Boat Service (essentially the UK’s Navy SEALS). The story follows Stratton as he and his team risk life, limb and national security to track down an international terrorist cell.

Hothouse Music will provide the film’s music and filming will take place in the UK and Italy this summer.
