Tom Cruise and Guy Ritchie for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. might finally be heading to the big screen, with Tom Cruise and Guy Ritchie linked with the film...
As his next film, the incoming sci-fi blockbuster Oblivion, gets ready to land next month, Tom Cruise has continued to keep himself busy (he's already done the bulk of work on the film after that, All You Need Is Kill). It seems as though he's already found his next project, with reports this morning that the actor is circling the long-mooted big screen take on The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
The film version has been bubbling away for some time, with Steven Soderbergh linked with directing the movie a little while back. But Soderbergh dropped out of the project, and the man who has signed up instead is apparently Guy Ritchie.
Tom Cruise would take on the role played by Robert Vaughn in the television series, and Scott Z Burns has penned a screenplay for the movie.
Assuming all of this goes ahead as planned, it may also open up a vacancy for a director on Sherlock Holmes 3, which Warner Bros continues to develop. Ritchie directed the first two movies, but may just find himself otherwise engaged for the next one, if The Man From U.N.C.L.E. presses ahead.
