Ben Walker, Henry Cavill to Scale Great Wall

After working with big stars like Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Craig, and Jake Gyllenhaal on his last few films, director Ed Zwick is betting big on soon-to-be-tested new talent. Variety reports that Zwick has lined up Ben Walker (Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter) to star opposite Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) in The Great Wall, an epic about fifteenth-century British warriors fighting at the site of the Chinese landmark. Abe Lincoln and Superman? Good guys to have on your side.
