Henry Cavill joins The Great Wall for Legendary EastSuperman: Man of Steel star Henry Cavill has lined up his first post-Superman gig, landing a starring role in The Great Wall for director Edward Zwick.

We first reported on this drama back in August, which is the first project to be developed under Legendary Pictures' new Legendary East banner. The story centers on how The Great Wall of China was built, and the mysterious circumstances which lead China to construct it. No character details were given for Henry Cavill's role.

Edward Zwick is directing The Great Wall from a script he is co-writing with Marshall Herskovitz. The project is based on an original idea by Legendary Pictures executive Thomas Tull and World War Z author Max Brooks.

Thomas Tull will produce for Legendary East, alongside Edward Zwick, Marshall Herskovitz, Jon Jashni, Alex Gartner, and Charles Roven. It isn't known when production will begin on The Great Wall.

The Great Wall comes to theaters November 23rd, 2016.

    Let's hope it can compete with Last Samurai with Tom Cruise, and not a bit of a flop like this. Some reviews on henry-cavill.info.

        Sounds awesome, and Brooks being involved? Even better.
