Soderbergh Helms “Man From U.N.C.L.E.”

Steven Soderbergh has apparently become the latest director whose name is being associated with the film adaptation of classic 60’s NBC TV series “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” for Warner Bros. Pictures says Heat Vision.

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.).

David Dobkin (“Wedding Crashers”) was most recently attached to direct and while that’s no longer the case, Dobkin will remain onboard as producer alongside John Davis and Jeff Kleeman.

Scott Z. Burns (“The Informant,” “Contagion”) will likely do a rewrite of Max Borenstein’s latest script draft.
