Although it was quite sudden and without warning, Tom Cruise has now officially dropped out of starring in the film adaptation of ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’. Here are the details being reported from the departure.
The film would have been the first big-screen adaptation of the former TV series from Warner Bros., though the studio and Cruise seemed to be unable to come to a deal. This forced Tom Cruise to drop the project all together as he moves on to his next feature.
As for scheduling, Tom Cruise was pinned to shoot this project, then quickly take on Guy Ritchie’s next installment of the Mission Impossible series, “Mission: Impossible 5”. This is just the latest setback for the Warner Bros. film, it was reported earlier that George Clooney had once been approached to take the lead, only to turn it down as well. Same story for Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper and almost every other leading-man in Hollywood. Even though there is no lead, there is still Armie Hammer, who already agreed to co-star in the project.
We will keep you updated, should anyone else be assigned to the role.
