I haven’t seen the new Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie, but I imagine it could be a good movie. Perhaps it is, now that they’re confident to move forward with the sequel. Henry Cavill’s co-star Armie Hammer says it’s happening.
Hammer, out doing Free Fire promotion, tells Slashfilm that the original film’s producer and co-writer Lionel Wigram is writing the sequel at the moment:
“I called Lionel Wigram, the producer of the movie, and he and Guy produced it and wrote it all together. I was like, ‘Dude, what’s the deal? I get asked about this s–t all the time. Can you just write a sequel?’ He was like, ‘You know what? Yeah, f–k it, I’ll do it. Sure, I’ll write a sequel.’
I was like, ‘If you write one, I’m sure we can get one made,’ so who knows? Today is the first day I’ve actually told anyone that story. I only told one other person who asked. Apparently, the sequel is being written right now. No pressure, Lionel!.”
Here’s the trailer for that recent movie.
