The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Was Originally Offered To Brad Pitt
Now we’re just left to wonder how different Man from U.N.C.L.E. would have been as a Brad Pitt joint. Not that Henry Cavill was an issue. In fact, he was so charismatic, charming and likable in Man that I’m kind of depressed he’s locked in to the DC Cinematic Universe for so many years.

5 Major Things You Need To Know About The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
One of the latest attempts at reviving the past reaches theaters on August 14. Guy Ritchie, who recently energized Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, is applying his dry wit and stylish visuals to the 1960s Cold War spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E., except instead of modernizing the story, he’s sending 2015 audiences into the past.

Man From U.N.C.L.E. Trailer Has Superman And Lone Ranger As Kick-Ass Spies
While movie franchises aren't getting so weird that Superman and the Lone Ranger are actually fighting side by side, in the first trailer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. we do have our first look at Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer teaming up east-meets-west style for some pretty awesome spy action.

Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Finds A 2015 Release Date
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. looked much more promising when it was announced. Warner Bros. locked in Guy Ritchie to direct fresh off the billion dollar Sherlock Holmes franchise, and the studio locked in the two potential biggest stars of the 2013 summer season. Oh, did we mention those actors were Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill?

Luca Calvani Lands Villainous Role In The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
The Man movie still has an uphill battle, as far as I’m concerned. Movies based on old television programs aren’t easy slam dunks. Anything but. Owen Wilson and Eddie Murphy’s I Spy banked $33 million back in 2002. At the same time, Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway and The Rock powered Get Smart to a healthy $130 million. So it’s a crapshoot.

The Great Gatsby's Elizabeth Debicki Snags Big Man From U.N.C.L.E. Role
It might have been hard to focus on her, given how many sparkles and heavy-handed symbols were flying at you in 3D, but Elizabeth Debicki was one of the biggest bright spots in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, playing the slinky and sloe-eyed Jordan Baker as the unflappable straight woman in this crazy world. The part seemed to destine her for bigger things, and now she's found at least one of them

Man Of Steel's Henry Cavill Could Replace Tom Cruise In The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Cavill will likely see an endless stream of job offers roll in once his Superman movie hits theaters on June 14th, so Warner Bros. - which backed Man of Steel and is developing Man From U.N.C.L.E. - is smart to keep him in the studio fold.

The Social Network star Armie Hammer hasn't quite made his way to the A-list just yet, but he's certainly doing a great job of finding projects that allow him to work with the biggest stars in the world. This summer we'll see him ride alongside Johnny Depp in Gore Verbinski's long-awaited The Lone Ranger, and now the up-and-coming actor has found a role opposite Tom Cruise.

Guy Ritchie Takes Over The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Memorably named super-spy Napoleon Solo has been rescued from oblivion by the guy who helped make Sherlock Holmes cool again. Scratch that -- by the Guy who helped make Sherlock Holmes cool again. Guy Ritchie, to be specific, who has swooped in to take over the floundering project. Ritchie is forming a new production company with his Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows producer Lionel Wigram, and the pair plan to make U.N.C.L.E. the company's first project, with Ritchie in the director's chair.

Steven Soderbergh Reportedly No Longer Directing The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Back in 2009 it was Steven Soderbergh who had been hired to direct an adaptation of Michael Lewis' Moneyball. Then, less than 20 days before the start of production, the movie was put on hold, elements were called into question (he wanted to feature real players, have real interviews, etc) and, eventually, he was removed from the project.

Is Channing Tatum Soderbergh's New Man From U.N.C.L.E.?
Since Clooney bowed out a murderer's row of hunky talent has been eyed for starring roles in the film, with Bradley Cooper rumored for a long time before recently dropping out, Joel Edgerton >recently mentioned, and Ryan Gosling, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Alexander Skarsgard all in contention at some point (none of them seem to be in the running now)

Bradley Cooper Won't Be The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
That once again leaves Warner Bros. with two lead roles to fill: Solo and his Russian partner, Illya Kuryakin, originally played by David McCallum. Solo and Kuryakin work together for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, an international spy organization. Over the course of four seasons, Solo and Kuryakin helped defend the world from evildoers such as the nefarious organization known as THRUSH.

Bradley Cooper May Be Steven Soderbergh's Man From U.N.C.L.E
It goes without saying that it's an interesting transition to go from an actor like George Clooney to Bradley Cooper. Both have very different styles and are known for playing very different types of roles. Despite the fact that the production is working from established source material, it's hard not to wonder if the project will be adapted to better suit Cooper.

Ryan Gosling, Joseph Gordon-Levitt And Alexander Skarsgard Being Looked At For The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
If you've ever had the desire to see a blond Joseph Gordon-Levitt, it may be in your best interest to contact Warner Bros. and plead them to cast him as Kuryakin. Any of the three actors would be great for the part, but assuming one of them gets it, who should be the one to take Clooney's place?

Burns confirmed that the project, which he's been attached to since last November, has a finished script and will start casting soon.

Given how tumultuous the Cold War period was it's hard to guess just what they might have in mind. Could it be about The Bay of Pigs? The Cuban Missile Crisis? Operation Mongoose? The Berlin Crisis? There are any number of events that Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin could become embroiled in.
