Yet more casting troubles have befell Steven Soderbergh's loooooong in development big-screen MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. reboot, with the increasingly indecisive Bradley Cooper (LIMITLESS) the latest to drop out.

As previously reported here, Cooper was in talks to portray Napoleon Solo, the role made famous by Robert Vaughn during its 4 year run in the 60's. It isn't known why Cooper had a sudden change of heart, but we think he might have jumped ship after watching OCEAN'S TWELVE.

Despite this casting hickup, Joel Edgerton (THE THING) is still thought to be attached to play Illya Kuryakin.

Looks like we'll have a long wait ahead of us for this one. If we even get to see it at all.

Who would you prefer in the role now Cooper has bailed? Are you happy with Edgerton? Let us know in the Comments below or on Twitter @Starburst_Mag
