In news that’s sent shock waves around… well, Guy Ritchie’s house, Tom Cruise has announced his departure from the “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” movie. The film, designed to be the first in a series of “U.N.C.L.E” adventures for the “Mission : Impossible” star and co-star Armie Hammer, is now without a lead as it swiftly approaches its Fall start date.

Cruise, says Deadline, has exited the Warner Bros project in favour of getting Paramount’s “Mission : Impossible 5″ together sooner, aiming to shoot the sequel before the end of the year.

George Clooney had been attached to star in “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” a couple of years back -when Steven Soderbergh was helming – but no word on whether he’ll be asked to come back and fill-in for Cruise.
