Here’s the thing guys, according to the latest reports, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ryan Gosling
and Alexander Skarsgard
are all somehow involved in the upcoming Steven Soderbergh
’s adaptation of the 1960s spy series The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
When I say involved – I mean they are on Warner Bros’ wish list. What a list! Well, if you ask me, I would love to see all of them in this movie!
As you probably already know, George Clooney
is no longer attached to star as the lead, but as for the above mentioned guys, they are all in talks to play the other principal role Illya Kuryakin, the Russian agent played by David McCallum in the original series.
I guess that, when it comes to this role, Gosling and Gordon Lewitt have pretty good chances. But, just for a record, those guys only comprise three of the approximately twenty names that Warner Bros. are currently considering so we’ll definitely have to wait and see who will have an honor to portray other interesting roles in this (obviously) huge project.
For those of you who are not so familiar with the whole thing, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is an American television series that was broadcast on NBC from September 22, 1964, to January 15, 1968.
It follows the exploits of two secret agents, played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who work for a fictitious secret international espionage and law-enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E.
