The Man From U.N.C.L.E.: Hugh Grant joins Henry Cavill
Guy Ritchie's film of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. starts shooting next month, and Hugh Grant is joining Henry Cavill in the cast...
Bringing The Man From U.N.C.L.E. to the big screen has been no easy job. In the dim and distant past, it was a project that Steven Soderbergh had been exploring, when George Clooney was reportedly interested. Then, more recently, Tom Cruise was set to star, but he dropped out when Mission: Impossible 5 got prioritised.
Yet production will now begin next month on the film, which has most of its key personnel now in place. Guy Ritchie is set to direct the film (and he's co-written the script), which will now star Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. Alicia Vikander is taking on the role of the female lead.
And now we hear that Hugh Grant is the latest addition to the cast. He's going to play the head of British Naval Intelligence in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
We don't have news of a release date yet, but late 2014 or summer-ish 2015 is likely. When we hear more, we'll let you know...
