Tom Cruise in Talks for "The Man From UNCLE," Directed by Guy Ritchie

Tom Cruise in Talks for "The Man From UNCLE," Directed by Guy RitchieSubmit Comment
Warner Bros is in talks with Tom Cruise to star in the studio's upcoming "The Man From UNCLE" film, which is based on the 1960s TV series and is set to be directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch).

This is the studio's second attempt to get the project off the ground. About two years ago, Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) was in talks to direct, while George Clooney was negotiating to star. Clooney eventually dropped out due to a neck and back injury.

"The Man From 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 the 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.

Surprisingly his character's name will be Ethan Hunt and it be a crossover with this and MI5.

I wonder if Ritchie will get Cruise to act?

Should have been Cruise in The Day The Earth Stood Still and not Keanu Reeves.

Cruise in a perfect Brooks Brothers dark suit, trim and polished, the understated menace of an un-man in a f*cking suit and tie.

Keanu Reeves sucks.

So, basically it's WB's movie version of "The Americans?" It's an intriguing show in how the main characters are Soviet spies, but yeah. Kickstart that.
