Warner Bros reboot of ‘The Man From Uncle,’ which stars Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill has been pushed back seven months.
The spy thriller, which sees ‘Man of Steel‘s’ Cavill play Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer’s Illya Kuryakin, has moved from its initial January 2015 slot to August 14 of that year.
The film, which is to be directed by Guy Ritchie is a reboot of the classic 1960s series, which saw Robert Vaughn and David McCallum originate the roles of super spies Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. The series was a huge cult hit and even had its own theatrical movie as well as several television movies. The series centred on two agents working for United Network Command for Law and Enforcement whose mission was to stop the enemy agency T.H.R.U.S.H. at all cost.
The remake, which retains the Cold War ’60s setting, features Hugh Grant, Alicia Vikander and Jared Harris in its supporting cast.
