21 June 2015 4:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Over the past few years, producer Lionel Wigram has been involved in a number of films we’ve all enjoyed like the final Harry Potter movies, Sherlock Holmes, and Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. With his great working relationship with directorGuy Ritchie, it wasn’t a surprise to see Wigram hard at work on the London set of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. when I visited the movie during its shoot along with a few other reporters. When our group sat down with Wigram, he talked about his working relationship with Ritchie, how they had talked about doing a spy movie a decade ago, why they wanted to do an origin story, casting, sequels, and so much more. If you’re curious how a movie really gets made and want to hear some great behind-the-scenes stories on the making of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., you’re in the right place. »

High-Octane Trailer For The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Is A Classy Affair

11 June 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Guy Ritchie is a curious fit for the spy genre – in his past films, the British helmer has gotten down and dirty with London’s lowlifes, duked it out with fast-talking thugs and turned Baker Street’s best into a bone-crunching badass. So in watching the new trailer for his spin on The Man From U.N.C.L.E., it’s thrilling to see how Ritchie has taken to the slick, stylish world of upper-class espionage, complete with gorgeous period wear and lush locales. Of course, there are still some hard-hitting fight scenes, including one in a dingy bathroom, but the film seems more Bond than bruiser for the most part.

That’s not a bad thing – with the excellent cast he’s enlisted here, Ritchie has all the materials to make a thrilling spy film. Henry Cavill stars as CIA Agent Solo, who is forced to partner with a Russian agent named »

11 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Henry Cavill might not be James Bond but he does have a licence to kill in the new trailer for The Man from Uncle.

Director Guy Ritchie has rebooted the classic spy series for the big screen in a thriller that blends action and comedy.

Set against the Cold War in the 1960s, two intelligence agents (Cavill and Armie Hammer) from the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement agency join forces to oppose an international terror organisation.

Agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin are aided in their mission by their pipe-smoking and stern supervisor Mr Waverly (Hugh Grant).

The original Man from Uncle television series starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum in its four-season run on NBC in the 1960s.

Aside from directing this reboot, Ritchie also penned the screenplay with his Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows producer Lionel Wigram.

Matt Smith Tipped For The Lead In Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

24 March 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Former Timelord Matt Smith is rumored to be in contention for the lead role in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. According to a report (via MTV News), the Doctor Who star is “tipped for the role” after Benedict Cumberbatch apparently turned it down. The two sources cited in MTV’s post – The Sun and the Irish Examiner – don’t boast the best track record when it comes to solid intel, but there is still the possibility that Smith may indeed be in talks.

Should this rumor bear any weight, then Smith will be tackling the role of Newt Scamander, an author whose work is heavily referenced throughout the Potterverse. J.K. Rowling penned the script for the upcoming movie based on her own story, which is set in the same wizarding world that first spawned Harry Potter. Those hoping for cheeky cameos from franchise favorites will be sorely disappointed, »
