Steven Soderbergh in Talks for "The Man From UNCLE"

Steven Soderbergh in Talks for "The Man From UNCLE"Submit Comment
Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's Eleven, Traffic) is in talks to direct the big screen version of "The Man From UNCLE" TV series for Warner Bros. Meanwhile, Soderbergh's "The Informant" writer Scott Z Burns is also in talks to come aboard as writer.

"UNCLE" aired on NBC from 1964-68, during a Cold War period that saw numerous spy shows hit the airwaves. James Bond author Ian Fleming was even a creator of the show, which focused on the adventures of American and Russian members of a secret agency called the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.

David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) was previously in talks to helm with plans of developing the film as an action/comedy. Soderbergh, who is aiming to begin shooting before the end of the year, will likely abandon that idea.

Another remake. Sounds like this movie will ended up just like Get Smart. I think David Dobkin is making good decision to leave this crap project. If Soderbergh come this sense, he'll do the same.

An action comedy based from a serious spy series ? Didn't we already have that with MI:2 ?

Steven Soderbergh, The guy used to make some good movies, Out of Sight , Sex Lies and video tapes, Traffic the first ocean movie.

Would be good to see him get back to the quality of those movies.

As much as i love the Man From Uncle (brought the complete series Briefcase not so long ago) not sure this project is the one to do that for him.

@Max Rockatansky Junior & Dre-EL The Man From UNCLE had a lot of humour in it so an action comedy would be fine, just not an out-an-out comedy like the Starsky & Hutch movie. (I liked that but it was more of a spoof of Starsky & Hutch, I would have preferred it a bit more serious.) Basically it should be like whichever James Bond movie had the most humour. (Not including the 60s' Casino Royale, lol!)
