Armie Hammer Joins Tom Cruise in Ritchie's 'Man from U.N.C.L.E.'

Man from U.N.C.L.E. / Armie Hammer

Well, it sounds like Armie Hammer is just making his way to all the A-list stars to keep his career going strong. This summer The Social Network star will take the lead in The Lone Ranger alongside Johnny Depp, and now he'll be working with Tom Cruise as THR reports Hammer is joining the adaptation of the 1960s TV series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Director Guy Ritchie is behind the film after Steven Soderbergh stepped away, eventually causing George Clooney to fall out of the project as well. But it was Cruise's casting that gave the project new life and saved Ritchie from leaving to take on a different project instead. Read on!

The original NBC television series, which ran from 1964-1968, followed two mismatched secret agents (one American, one from the USSR) working for the United Network Command for Law Enforcement as they thwarted the plots of THRUSH, an organization so evil that even opposing countries like Russia and the U.S. put aside their differences and worked together to oppose it. It seems interesting that Cruise is taking on the project since he already brought the similar TV series Mission: Impossible to life on the big screen. And Hammer is just coming off reviving an old franchise too. Hopefully they can make this work.

So, in other words Cruise is taking yet another role like a lot of the ones he's done before. No surprise at all.
