Based on the popular 60s spy TV series, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is directed by Guy Ritchie and set to start filming in September.

The project has seen many scripts, many directors, and even many big stars.

Until late May, Tom Cruise was on board to revive Robert Vaughn's role but bowed out due to Mission: Impossible 5 commitments. Man of Steel star, Henry Cavill, has been cast in his place.

No release date has been set.
