The 1960s spy television show, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., has been one of those ‘long in development’ projects – it’s been a long and tough road to the big screen, but now it’s finally coming. After seeing two previous directors as well as George Clooney then Tom Cruise leave the project, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is complete and ready for next year. Here’s the first look at The Man from U.N.C.L.E. with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer.
Here’s an early synopsis:
In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons.
It’s been known that director Guy Ritchie is going to keep the 1960s Cold War setting from the show, that goes along with the premise of two spies from the world’s biggest rivals having to work together. As you can see, the image nails the costume and atmosphere of that time period.
Usually when we get a first look image or poster, a trailer comes shortly afterward. But since the studio made a release date change from January to August (showing confidence in its numbers), I wouldn’t expect a trailer for at least a little while longer. But who knows, maybe we’ll get surprised with one here pretty soon.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is set for August 14th, 2015. Directed by Guy Ritchie starring Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Hugh Grant, Alicia Vikander, Jared Harris, and Elizabeth Debicki.
