What We Learned From The 'Stratton' Announcement

Now that we've had a few days to calm down after Simon West was announced as the director for Stratton, we've put together a few key points as we look ahead to the start of production.  

1) Production timeline.

We knew Stratton would begin filming sometime between April and June, and now we've learned cameras won't begin rolling until at least the end of June.

2) Busy, busy, busy!

Our first thought after finding out those productions details, was how is Henry going to fit everything in?! -- We can't imagine him not turning up at Comic-Con in early July, for what's sure to be an exciting Batman v Superman panel. That will take place roughly a month before The Man from U.N.C.L.E. opens on August 14. Between promotion for U.N.C.L.E. and Batman v Superman, U.N.C.L.E. premieres, and Stratton filming, we're thinking it's a good thing Henry is Superman.. because he's gonna be putting in a whole lot of flying time!

3) Stratton cast, director background. 

So now that Stratton has a director, the next step will be finding Henry's costars and we can't wait to hear who will be joining him in the film. We're also super excited about Simon West at the helm, because like Henry mentioned in the announcement, the famed director is known for "his ability to marry story-telling and action."

Here is a look at some of his work. We're on board with Stratton!

The main reason we are so excited for Henry and this project, is the fact that it's something he's been wanting to do for a while, thanks to his family ties to the military:

“I’ve long wanted to tell a story about the British Special Forces and finally the opportunity has come around. Duncan Falconer’s work is fantastic and we are incredibly fortunate to be working with him so closely.

Henry will portray John Stratton, who Falconer created from his own experiences while serving as a Royal Marine. Henry is an ambassador for The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, and he's just begun his training for his role as the Special Boat Service operative trying to track down an international terrorist cell. The film is also the first project for his newly formed company Promethean Productions, which he's running with his brother Charlie and partner Rex Glensy. That's all we know so far, look for the latest updates on Stratton as production gets closer.


  1. I can't wait to see what west does with Stratton, I love Lara croft so I'm looking forward to his work with Falconer's character. I don't know how he's going to do it but I know he will. I know I will be there opening weekend for "Man from uncle" to show my support for Henry because he is so amazing with his fans and all his good works with his charity's, he deserves it and alot more. Thanks HCN, Henry for the updates, I love this blog!
