Guy Ritchie to helm Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare for Paramount

Published: 23rd February 2021

British filmmaker Guy Ritchie will be tackling the upcoming World War II film, Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, for Paramount.

The movie is an adaptation of the book, Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill's Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Op, by Damien Lewis. The book tells the true story of the top-secret 'butcher-and-bolt' black ops units that former UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill tasked with stopping the unstoppable German war machine.

Paramount bought the rights to the book in 2015 and writers such as Arash Amel, Paul Tamasy, and Eric Johnson have been developing drafts.

Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman will produce the project through Jerry Bruckheimer Films. Ivan Atkinson will serve as the executive producer.

Ritchie's directorial credits include movies such as Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, among many others.

He most recently directed The Gentlemen with Matthew McConaughey and Charlie Hunnam, and is currently reuniting with Jason Statham for his next.
