Henry Cavill, not Superman, will star in the movie adaptation of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E'.
The film, based on a 1960s TV show, will star Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer.
The upcoming The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Henry Cavill, will be released on Jan 16, 2015 – Martin Luther King Holiday weekend in the US – Warner Bros said Thursday.
Cavill will play Napoleon Solo with Armie Hammer co-starring as Illya Kuryakin, Solo’s fellow agent in the United Network Command for Law Enforcement. Robert Vaughan and David McCallum originated the roles on the 1960s TV spy series.
Warner Bros also set a Feb 27, 2015 release for Focus, the grifter comedy starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie, from the writer-director team of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.
Man From U.N.C.L.E. will have some competition. Also slated to open on that date are Fox’s I, Frankenstein, Kevin Hart’s The Wedding Ringer from Sony and an untitled Michael Mann cyber thriller from Universal starring Chris Hemsworth.
Focus is scheduled to go up against the Universal thriller Everest and the Ryan Reynolds sci-fi thriller Selfless. — Reuters
