Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo
February 2015 edition of Total Films magazine shows "Ten things you need to know about Guy Ritchie's big screen reboot of the Man From UNCLE". Excerpt:
1) The U stands for United - That's United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, the secret spy ring at the center of the cult '60 film.
2) It's actually happening - on and of the production slate, the project was nursed by Steven Soderbergh until he dropped out in 2013.
3) Guy Ritchie's directing - working with his co-writer Lionel Wigram (...) Ritchie gave the stalled script a complete overhaul.
4) Henry Cavill is the new Napoleon Solo - "I'm sure he will be fine" - said the 81 years old Vaughn of his replacement.
5) Armie Hammer is excited - cast as Solo's straight-laced Russian co-spy Illya Kuryakin, Armie Hammer is still working in his poker face. "Getting to play a KGB agent is exciting".
