Henry Cavill to Rescue ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’?
He may be super, but Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill might be taking on another equally super role in the film adaptation of the classic spy series The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
If cast, Cavill will star as Napoleon Solo, the role that was recently vacated by the one and only Tom Cruise. Cruise has decided to focus his attention on powerhouse Mission: Impossible 5.
Guy Richie is directing the film. Cavill would star alongside Armie Hammer and Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (who is also in negotiations) if cast.
The film is set to begin shooting this fall. U.N.C.L.E focuses on the story of the spy adventures of an American agent, Napoleon Solo, and Soviet agent Illya Kuryakin. Hammer is playing Kuryakin.
