THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. To Begin Filming in September, Elizabeth Debicki Joins Cast

There have been several big changes early on in the production of the 1960s spy series adaptation "The Man From U.N.C.L.E", but now it seems they are full-speed ahead. Elizabeth Debicki, who shined in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby", has joined the cast. The ensemble already includes Armie Hammer, Henry Cavill and Alicia Vikander.

Hammer and Cavill will play a Russian and American spy who team up to fight some bad guys from the organization known as THRUSH. Vikander is already set to play the main female lead and Debicki will play what is being described as the femme fatale role. Rose Byrne and Charlize Theron were previously up for that role prior to Debricki snagging it.

As mentioned, there have been a lot of moving parts on this project up to this point. Steven Soderbergh was originally set to direct, only to drop out, resulting in Ritchie being locked in to helm instead. George Clooney was also set to star at that time, but he left due to not being physically up to the role due to previous injuries he incurred.

Now that the cast and director are all set, the production seems to be moving forward, with a September production kick-off targeted.

With the big news of Batman appearing in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel, it will be interesting to see if Cavill and Hammer have chemistry, since Hammer's name has been tossed in the mix as potential Bale replacements.

    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.
