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.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
