Henry Cavill’s new movie, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, has a surprising link to 007. Set to release this April, the film is loosely based on the real-life exploits of the Special Operations Executive (SOE), a covert British organization crucial to the Allied victory.

However, it takes some creative liberties from historical events for entertainment purposes. Guy Ritchie, known for directing action films like Sherlock Holmes and Snatch, is directing the film.

Recently, Cavill teased that the film has a James Bond link. This would be interesting news for 007 fans, given that the 40-year-old didn’t get to play the role.

James Bond Connection Revealed in Henry Cavill’s Upcoming Movie

During a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Henry Cavill dropped an interesting bombshell about his character in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. He revealed that Gus has a surprising connection to Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond.

In The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, the Superman star takes on the role of Gus March-Phillipps, who leads Britain’s first special forces team in World War II.

Gus serves as an inspiration for the writer’s legendary secret agent. Cavill even speculates that Gus might have also written his own spy novel based on his real-life wartime experiences. Check out the British actor’s quote below:

“Ian Fleming was part of this Special Operations Executive. He wrote James Bond, and apparently based James Bond upon Gus March-Phillipps, the guy who I play. I reckon it was probably a bit more than that, it was probably other characters as well.

But it’s my understanding, controversially, that my character, Gus March-Phillipps, in real life, wrote a novel with a spy character based upon his various adventures.

But he died during World War II and so he never got to continue writing his books. Had he survived, maybe he would have beaten Ian Fleming to the punch. Maybe.”

Imagine a scenario where a James Bond-like spy was a rugged, battle-hardened WWII soldier instead of the debonair secret agent we know today. It might be hard to imagine, though!

Cavill did not get to play James Bond after all, even though many fans wanted him to (he even auditioned for Casino Royale — as director Martin Campbell revealed in an interview with Express UK).

The producers seem to prefer younger actors, and since Cavill is 40, there are rumors that Aaron Taylor-Johnson might be the new Bond (via BBC).

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare provides an intriguing link between actual historical events and fiction. Alongside Henry Cavill, Henry Golding, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Alan Ritchson, and Alex Pettyfer are also joining him in the military saga.

Even though Cavill might not be stepping into the role of James Bond, this movie offers insights into the origins of the iconic character. So, if you’re a Bond fan or fascinated by World War II history, this film is a must-watch!
