Even though Henry Cavill and Vertigo Leisure are hooked up to “Warhammer 40,000” already, the report emphasizes that Amazon continues to be in negotiations with Video games Workshop over the rights to adapt the property and no showrunners or writers have been hooked up but. The UK-based gaming producer that created the sport within the Nineteen Eighties has been concerned in talks with the corporate for months at this level, however there are reportedly different contenders within the combine for the rights as nicely.
Contemplating how a lot unhealthy information Cavill has needed to cope with lately, let’s hope that Amazon comes via for him since he is a big “Warhammer” fan that paints his personal figures and has expressed curiosity in being part of the franchise previously. In the event that they do, the sequence can be set in a bleak, war-ridden future the place people (who unite to kind the militaristic military generally known as the Imperium of Man) are embroiled in an never-ending conflict with aliens, gods, demons, and different factions. As we have seen with different Prime Video programming like “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Energy,” the corporate is not afraid to dish out some massive bucks to carry these huge genre-heavy tasks to life. Hopefully, the streamer hasn’t put all their cash eggs within the LOTR basket, because the ridiculously widespread “Warhammer 40,000” may simply grow to be their subsequent massive tentpole franchise in the event that they’re prepared to pay for the rights.
