The adaptation of the '60s spy TV series "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." has evolved from the original players that came with the project. First, Steven Soderbergh was set to direct with George Clooney locked in to star. Then Clooney stated he didn't think he could physically handle the role due to "Syriana" injuries he incurred, so both roles then became empty again.
Tom Cruise is now set to star and actor Armie Hammer has just signed on as well. "Snatch" and "Sherlock Holmes" director Guy Ritchie is set to helm. Ritchie's cool and unique style should be great in a gritty, spy thriller.
The screenplay is being written by David Campbell Wilson and Scott Z. Burns and revolves around agents of the United Network Command for Law Enforcement. The original series starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, and now Cruise is set to take Vaughn's role of Napoleon Solo while Hammer will fill McCallum's spot as Illya Kuryakin.
