*In an exclusive interview, Babs Olusanmokun offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into his role in Guy Ritchie’s “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare,” shedding light on the character development and the excitement of working on the highly anticipated project.

Best known for his role in “Star Trek,” Babs recently appeared in “Book of Clarence” and is now one of the leads in Ritchie’s action-packed adventure that stars Henry Cavill (Justice League), Alan Ritchson (REACHER), Eiza Gonzalez, and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians). The feature is based upon recently declassified files of the British War Department and inspired by true events that are detailed in the book “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill’s Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Ops” by Damien Lewis. 

Here’s the movie synopsis: “THE MINISTRY OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE is an action-comedy that tells the story of the first-ever special forces organization formed during WWII by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a small group of military officials including author Ian Fleming. The top-secret combat unit, composed of a motley crew of rogues and mavericks, goes on a daring mission against the Nazis using entirely unconventional and utterly “ungentlemanly” fighting techniques. Ultimately their audacious approach changed the course of the war and laid the foundation for the British SAS and modern Black Ops warfare.”

“Guy is really good at creating an environment where creativity feels safe. He’s a really good leader on set,” said Cavill in an interview with MovieWeb

“He gives everyone their room to shine as well,” Cavill added. “And without sounding corny, because people always say this, they say it feels like family. It really does, because he’s been working with a lot of those guys since his earliest movies on the crew. And it’s not too straight-laced.”’

At the film’s recent New York premiere, Cavill told Variety, “A lot of the moments were spur of the moment. That’s the way we worked on this movie. We all sit there in the morning, kick the scene around and come up with some during shooting. And if it works, it works; if it doesn’t, it doesn’t.

He continued, “It’s a freeing process because it feels a lot like family to be throwing ideas out there to try stuff and Guy will be like, ‘No, that’s a terrible idea. Sit in the corner. You’re not allowed to have ideas anymore.’ And then immediately afterwards you’ll have the best idea in the room and you’ll be the favorite student.”
