Dominic Cooper Replaces Henry Cavill For British SAS Thriller, STRATTON
Man Of Steel star Henry Cavill is holding out for a sequel to the aforementioned film amid the line-up Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have going ahead of next year’s release of Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. In the meantime, one other property Cavill was developing under his Promethean Productions banner was the British SAS actioner, Stratton, based on the work of pennamed author Duncan Falconer, up until Cavill reportedly parted ways from potentially starring as the title character back in May.
Fiercely independent SBS agent Stratton is a good soldier – to a fault. Part of a special service team deployed in Kazakhstan on the tail of international terrorists, Gandapur and Pinskov, Stratton risks life, limb and even national security to do what he thinks is right.
Fighting with him is Aggy, his on-again-off-again love interest, a tomboy desperate to prove herself as a soldier and break through Stratton’s emotional armour to the good man she can see underneath. Hamdi is alongside them – a second-generation migrant and good friend of Aggy’s, he has a charm and poise quite different to Stratton’s straightforward soldiering. This very British team is joined by Hank, a young US navy Seal also looking to prove himself on the front line.
Their hunt for the enemy brings them unexpectedly deep into the heart of Europe and ever closer to home. In Rome they follow hot on the heels of Italian criminal Bascanti, a man who turns out to be at the centre of international terrorism, masterminding a terrorist attack on London.
When Stratton is captured by Bascanti’s henchmen he uncovers a mole within his team and his already chaotic reality is thrown even further into turmoil. With the enemy lurking around every corner, time is running out for Stratton. Who can he trust? Is it already too late?
