Well, HN Entertainment can now confirm with our own information that Ben Davis is indeed attached to the film and will be the director of photography of The Eternals. Ben’s previous film credits include Layer Cake, Stardust, Captain Marvel, Guardians of The Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Kick-Ass, Dumbo, and Kingsman: The Great Game.
Matthew Vaughn also recently stated during the press rounds for Rocketman that Kingsman: The Great Game had wrapped filming, which would mean that Davis is now available to move on to The Eternals.
