Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of the popular 1960s NBC spy series ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ is very much a throwback to the classic spy movies. Whereas most modern spy movies, like ‘Skyfall’ or the upcoming ‘Kingsman’, do their best to distance themselves from the Roger Moore style, ‘U.N.C.L.E.’ actually embraces it. It’s even set in the 1960s. But, is there an audience for a good, old fashioned spy movie? Watch the new ‘U.N.C.L.E.’ trailer and see for yourself.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
It’s been a little while since we’ve gotten a new Guy Ritchie film—three years, in fact–but the director is currently working on a film adaptation of the classic spy series ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,’ starring ‘Man of Steel’ Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. Today brings our first sneak peek at the upcoming film, featuring Cavill, Hammer, and co-star Alicia Vikander, which means a trailer should be coming along shortly.
The long-awaited (?) film adaptation of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' is still trucking along, even though it has faced many obstacles during its journey to the big screen. The film cast Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer months ago, and now it has added a big-name supporting player: Hugh Grant.
When Tom Cruise left Guy Ritchie's 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' for 'Mission: Impossible 5,' it looked like it could possibly kill the project. But now Warner Brothers wants their new Superman Henry Cavill, the star of this summer's 'Man of Steel,' to take the role.
Just a few months before filming was scheduled to begin, Tom Cruise has abruptly left Warner Bros.' planned remake of the classic '60s TV series 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' But one action-packed remake of an old spy TV show's loss is another's gain. Cruise will instead focus his attention on 'Mission: Impossible 5' which is now gearing up to begin production later this year.
Though we had heard rumors about Tom Cruise starring in a Guy Ritchie-helmed adaptation of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,' it looks like the project is moving forward and has just added Armie Hammer as Cruise's partner in arms.
Tom Cruise has turned his focus to Guy Ritchie and his planned feature film update of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' TV series which is (still) in the works over at Warner Bros.
