A day after being dropped from the DC Superman franchise, Hollywood star Henry Cavill has found his next big acting gig with a series adaptation of the miniature game Warhammer 40,000.

The actor also quit the Netflix show The Witcher recently.


According to entertainment news website The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon Studios is negotiating a deal with the game’s producer Games Workshop. Cavill is attached to star and executive produce the series adaptation of the popular science-fiction fantasy.

In Warhammer 40,000, players enact battles using miniature models of warriors and fighting vehicles. It is set in a distant future, where a stagnant human civilization is threatened by hostile aliens and supernatural creatures. The models in the game are a mix of humans, aliens and supernatural monsters, wielding futuristic weaponry and supernatural powers.

No writers or showrunners are currently attached with the project.

Cavill most recently starred in Netflix movie Enola Holmes 2 with Millie Bobby Brown. His upcoming project is Matthew Vaughn's spy film Argylle.
