Dec 16 (Reuters) – Amazon.com (AMZN.O) is seeking to bring popular fantasy miniature game “Warhammer 40,000” to screens with former “Superman” actor Henry Cavill, after agreeing in principle to produce film and television content with its British developer.
The 39-year-old British actor did not give details about the extent of his involvement.
A self-proclaimed “geek”, Cavill has in several interviews shared his love for video games and Warhammer itself, and has made no secret of how he relentlessly pursued makers of “The Witcher” to cast him on the show.
He surprised fans at the beginning of the pandemic and posted a picture on social media platform Instagram of his “almost life-long” hobby, painting a miniature from Games Workshop.
