George Clooney Drops Out Of “U.N.C.L.E.”

George Clooney is reportedly dropping out of the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s film adaptation of classic 60’s TV series “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” at Warner Bros. Pictures says Deadline.

Robert Vaughn and David McCallum starred in the original spy drama as two agents of the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.), who fought the forces of Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity (T.H.R.U.S.H.).

No reason was given for his departure but the studio is determined to stick with their schedule which means Soderbergh will begin shooting the movie in February. Pre-production is currently underway.
