Dominic Cooper Replaces Henry In 'Stratton'

 
GFM Films announced today that Dominic Cooper will take over Henry's role in Stratton, after creative differences led to him leaving the project in May:

Gemma Chan, Austin Stowell, Tyler Hoechlin and Tom Felton also star in the film, which starts shooting next week in Italy before moving to Rome and London.

Simon West is still on board to direct.


Back when Henry left the film, author Duncan Falconer spoke about his integrity and what a pleasure it had been working with him. We know this was a project close to Henry's heart, but also know there are better things to come. We'll be here cheering for him the entire time!

  2. Man I'm so disappointed! I'm with you River, I had hoped things could change but I guess not. This film will flop! B movie for sure. It will never make the numbers that Henry would of pulled in. And to the GFM clowns stop trashing Cavill for your bad decisions! That's another thing that had me peed. Ahhhh this blows! There not getting my money that's for sure.

    3. I had that same hope. But Henry has better things moving forward. I just hate all the bashing on Henry, back off Gfm and own up to your bad decisions. Henry is not going to do poor quality films he has integrity.

    5. That's very true, 5'9? A bit short. He's not bad looking but he's no Henry. Disappointed Stratton would have been great. Sorry Duncan!

    1. I agree. I don't see him as Stratton. He's not Henry that's utterly obvious. Not for me.

  6. I read the novel Falconer recently . Stratton appears as a loner . Unfortunately, those people who have influence on the cast, sometimes do not understand that the most important things are fans opinions.
    Surely Mr. Cavill looks for other projects. Much more interesting. He has got plenty of time.

  7. Absolutely agree. Fans opinions matter. We are the ones that will go see the film! In which this case we won't. Not interested in Cooper as Stratton so good luck with that.
