Guy Ritchie’s big-screen MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. reboot looks to have found its Illya Kuryakin in the form of Armie Hammer. Deadline, who broke the story, seem to indicate that Cruise is still very much attached to the project after reports of his involvement hit last month. If their sources are accurate, that would mean Cruise will be taking over from Robert Vaughn as our new Napoleon Solo. While Hammer isn't exactly on the same star level as Cruise yet, Warner Bros are clearly banking on him hitting it big with the Disney’s THE LONE RANGER, out this Summer.
Expect an official announcement soon.
