Swedish actress Alicia Vikander ("Anna Karenina") is in negotiations to play the female lead opposite Tom Cruise and Armie Hammer in Guy Ritchie's "Man From U.N.C.L.E." film at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Robert Vaughn and David McCallum starred in the original 1960s spy drama as American agent Napoleon Solo (Cruise) and Soviet agent Illya Kuryakin (Hammer).

The two agents work for 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.).

Vikander will play a new creation for the film, a British agent with a car fetish. Lionel Wigram and John Davis are producing.
