Will Tom Cruise Star in ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’?

tom c According to some sources Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise might be playing a leading role in a big screen adaptation of the famous TV show The Man From U.N.C.L.E. The show was a huge hit in the 1960’s and, for those who don’t know, it was about agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin who are fighting the evil organization T.H.R.U.S.H. The agents work for the United Network Command for Law Enforcement.

The movie was to be directed by Steven Soderbergh originally, but he left the project so Guy Ritchie will most likely do the job. Also, the original idea was to hire George Clooney for the leading role but he had to step out because of the neck and back surgery that wouldn’t make it possible for him to take the role. The information isn’t officially confirmed yet but Deadline says that the early talks between Cruise and the producers have begun.
