Amazon has teamed up with the creators of Warhammer 40,000 to turn the popular game into movies and shows. Henry Cavill, known for playing Superman, will be involved as both an executive producer and an actor.

The deal allows Amazon to make film and TV projects based on the Warhammer universe. Games Workshop, the company behind Warhammer, is excited about the creative process and is considering whether to start with a movie or a TV show.

Amazon, famous for its Lord of the Rings series, has seen success despite the pandemic, and its stock rose after the announcement. The partnership comes a year after talks between the British company and Amazon began.

A team of writers is being assembled to bring Warhammer to the screen. The deal also gives Amazon the option to use other Warhammer franchises in the future.

Over the years, Games Workshop has built a fanbase of millions who create and play with miniature models, contributing to a global gaming sector worth £8.6 billion.

The production will move forward once creative guidelines are agreed upon in the next twelve months.(Source: BBC)
