In an exclusive interview with MovieWeb, Alex Pettyfer talked about starring alongside the likes of Henry Cavill and Reacher star Alan Ritchson in director Guy Ritchie’s WWII action movie The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. Heaping praise on the ensemble cast, which also includes Eiza González, Henry Golding, and Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Pettyfer called the movie “a wild, wild, wild ride.”


“The film has an unbelievable cast. Dear friends of mine, Eiza González, Henry Cavill. Henry Golding, Alan Ritchson, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, and it is an absolute wild ride. I can’t give you anymore, but it is a wild, wild, wild ride. My favorite films of Guy’s, and in general, are Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. This is like meshing these films together with a little pinch of Inglourious Basterds and just a little pinch of Snatch. It’s a very good film. If I was not in the film, I would be the first person in the theater buying the ticket. I’m very excited for people to see the film.”

Directed and co-written by Guy Ritchie, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is based upon recently declassified files of the British War Department and inspired by true events. You can check out the official synopsis for The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare below.


“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.”

Alex Pettyfer Got Into Trouble Pranking People on the Set of His New Horror Movie


During the interview, Pettyfer also discussed his recent horror movie, Sunrise, which centers on a rural town that is plagued by a vampire and sees the actor starring alongside Guy Pearce. In stark contrast to the serious nature of the movie, Pettyfer that he kept getting into trouble for pranking people on set…

“I’m the one who’s pranking people on set to be honest. I’m getting told off for being a joker. I have to give you an anecdote. On Sunrise, I bought a water pistol. It was so cold in Ireland. I would sit in the car close to set. People are walking past. I had a crack in the window. I was squirting little bits of water out. I don’t know how I got such good aim. They would land on each member of the crew. I got our DP convinced a bird had pooped on him. I was in tears of laughter. I have videos of me shooting people with water pistols (laughs).

When you are in an independent film, it’s like the Wild Wild West. You have no time, no money, and you’re doing four scenes a day. You’re under pressure continuously to beat the clock, because the clock is money. When you’re on a big film or studio film, you’re doing one or two scenes. Sometimes you can do that one scene for weeks on end. It’s important for me as an actor to have a fluidity and lightheartedness to keep a morale on set.”


The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare
is scheduled to be released on April 19, 2024. Pettyfer’s latest release,
5lbs of Pressure
, is now available in theaters, digital, and on demand from Lionsgate.
