    Henry Golding has joined director Guy Ritchie and producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s upcoming spy thriller “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.”

    Based on the Damien Lewis book “Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill’s Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Ops,” the film tells the true story of a covert organization assembled by former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and James Bond creator Ian Fleming to combat the Nazis during World War II.

    The rights to the book were purchased by Paramount in 2015, and the movie is being produced by Bruckheimer, Chad Oman, Ivan Atkinson and John Friedberg for Black Bear International, reported Deadline. The script was written by Paul Tamasy, Eric Johnson, Arash Amel and Ritchie.

    Golding will star alongside a host of Hollywood’s brightest stars, including “Man of Steel” and “The Witcher” star Henry Cavill, “Baby Driver” actor Eliza González and “Reacher” star Alan Ritchson. 

    Production is expected to begin this month in Turkey.

    The “Crazy Rich Asians” star previously worked with Richie in the 2019 film “The Gentleman,” where he plays a Chinese gangster named Dry Eye.

    Some of Golding’s other future projects include two “Crazy Rich Asians” sequels and the spy film “Assassin Club.”
