Director Simon West (The Mechanic, Con Air) is set to direct a film starring the man of steel himself Henry Cavill. The film is called Stratton. The novels by Douglas Falconer that follow John Stratton, a Special Boat Service commando and his team as they track down a lethal international terrorist. Here’s what Henry Cavill had to say regarding his choice on the director:

“I’ve long wanted to tell a story about the British Special Forces and finally the opportunity has come around. Duncan Falconer’s work is fantastic and we are incredibly fortunate to be working with him so closely. We plan to convert the books to cinema as accurately as possible while keeping them topical. Simon West is a perfect match for this movie with his ability to marry story-telling and action, both of which are essential to do this project justice!”

Production of Stratton begins this summer
