Tom Cruise Exits MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.

We've been hearing about steady updates to the 1960s spy series big-screen adaptation "The Man From U.N.C.L.E" for some time now. Guy Ritchie was set to helm once Steven Soderbergh dropped out, with Tom Cruise locked in to star once George Clooney was no longer. Now it appears the hunt will begin again for the leading man, as Cruise has exited the picture.

Cruise's departure is said to be a scheduling conflict with the recently announced fifth "Mission Impossible" film that he is producing and starring in. The latest casting update to the picture was the addition of Armie Hammer. Both Hammer and Ritchie appear to still be attached at this time. But who will fill the leading man's shoes? Perhaps Hammer could pull an Edgerton, as seen in "Jane Got a Gun", and try his hand at the lead role.

What do you make of Cruise's departure? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.

    Magic and "The Social Network" shouldn't be in the same sentence. It was an awful movie for what has become "The Hateful Network". It's the beginning of the end for FB.
