Movie News

Well, it looks like production on Steven Soderberg’s (“Contagion”) next may finally begin if this is to be true.

Variety is reporting that Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover” fame) has emerged as Steven Soderbergh’s choice to star in Warner Bros.’ spy pic “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.”

After a bunch of A-listers passed on the part including Johnny Depp, Matt Damon, and George Clooney who, walked out on the project, WB has turned to Cooper. Ryan Gosling, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Alexander Skarsgard were also considered for the role at one point.

Variety also notes that once Cooper wraps “The Silver Linings Playbook” for director David O. Russell and The Weinstein Company, Cooper will segue into Alex Proyas’ “Paradise Lost” for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. He’s expected to wrap that big-budget epic by March, at which time he’d move directly to “U.N.C.L.E.”

“Man from UNCLE” will be based on the 1960s TV series that starred Robert Vaughn and ran from 1964-68.
