Eiza González is bracing for war(fare)…
The first trailer has been released for Guy Ritchie’s upcoming action-comedy The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare, starring the 34-year-old Mexican actress and singer.
The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced war movie stars Henry Cavill, González, Alan Ritchson, Henry Golding, Henrique Zaga, Alex Pettyfer, Cary Elwes, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Babs Olusanmokun and Til Schweiger.
The true story covers Winston Churchill and Ian Fleming’s secret WWII combat organization. The clandestine squad’s unconventional and ‘ungentlemanly’ fighting techniques against the Nazis helped change the course of the war and gave birth to the modern Black Ops unit.
The script by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, Arash Amel and Ritchie is based on war correspondent and military historian Damien Lewis’ best-selling book of the same name. Tamasy and Johnson initiated the project and sold it as a pitch to Bruckheimer and Paramount in 2015.
Black Bear arranged financing. Lionsgate is releasing domestically.
Gonzalez’s previous credits include Ambulance, Baby Driver and Bloodshot.
