Production has wrapped in Turkey on Guy Ritchie's upcoming war drama film The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.

The film starring Henry Cavill, is directed and co-written by Guy Ritchie and based on the 2015 book by Damien Lewis.

It centres on the British military who recruit a small group of highly-skilled soldiers to strike against Nazi forces behind enemy lines during World War II.

Sharing behind-the-scenes footage on Instagram with cast and crew, Cavill announced production wrap yesterday (April 25). 

He captioned the post with a lengthy ode to the production team and his cast members: “That's a wrap! My days on Ungentlemanly Warfare are over. Tis a sad day. I'm going to echo the sentiments of my co-stars and sing the praises of our intrepid crew. It's rare to come across a team so driven, dedicated and committed to the storytelling. That drive and dedication is only intensified by having a leader such as Guy Ritchie. His ability to weave story and create character might be second to none, and he wields it like it were magic.

“Those ingredients - skill, drive, and exceptional talent at the top, are only three of the ingredients needed for an experience that will last forever in memory. The fourth is happiness. Guy creates happiness on his set, it's a joyful place to be, full of laughter and japes and jests. The crew and cast's approach and personality is key in this. Everyone, without fail, was able to enjoy themselves while also working hard and being exceptional.

He added: “This wee pontification would not be complete without heaping praise upon my fellow actors. Alan Ritchson, the man mountain, with a heart of gold, and a wisdom and talent that can sweep you off your feet. Alex Pettyfer, the lover, the laugher, the warmth of a big smile and a jaw line that would challenge the Turkish mountains. Henry Golding Jnr, a snap quick acting reaction time, handsome beyond belief and always a man I was happy to see. And the last (but not the least) of my immediate team of misfits, Hero Fiennes Tiffin - a mega star in the making. I know a lot of you know him already, but my oh my he's going to have a magnificent career.

In closing, the actor said: “To the makers of The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare I shall miss you all, and gods willing - see you soon.“

Rounding out the cast is: Alex Pettyfer, Henry Golding, Eiza González, Alan Ritchson, and Hero Fiennes Tiffin, who he thanked in his Instagram post.

Alongside Ritchie, Paul Tamasy, Arash Amel, and Eric Johnson co-wrote the screenplay. The film is produced by action stalwart Jerry Bruckheimer alongside Ritchie, Ritchie's production partner Ivan Atkinson, Chad Oman, and John Friedberg for Black Bear Pictures.

Lionsgate has secured the film's domestic distribution rights and is scheduled to release in 2024.
