Star in talks to join Guy Ritchie's big-screen version of 60s espionage TV drama
Tom Cruise is set to spearhead a second big-screen take on a long-running 60s spy TV drama. The Mission: Impossible star is in talks to appear in a film based on The Man from Uncle for director Guy Ritchie, according to Deadline.
Warner Bros has been developing a movie based on the cult espionage show since the 90s and Ritchie replaces Steven Soderbergh in the director's chair. The Ocean's Eleven film-maker had proposed a version with George Clooney in the lead, but Clooney later left the project, citing unwillingness to take on an action role because he was having surgery to his neck and back.
