Gordon-Levitt, Gosling & Skarsgard up for Soderbergh's MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.

Director Steven Soderbergh is currently in the process of prepping up for his next film production The Man From U.N.C.L.E. they last we heard George Clooney had to drop out of the production. Now he is out looking to find someone to take on the lead role. In a recently report, someone close to the production said that Joseph Gordon-LevittRyan Gosling or Alexander Skarsgard could end up starring in the movie. So now it looks like they are going for a much younger male lead. Maybe that's why Clooney had to drop out of the project.

The film will be based on the 1960s light spy drama TV series that starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallumU.N.C.L.E. aired on NBC from 1964-68, during a Cold War period that saw numerous spy shows hit the airwaves. James Bond author Ian Fleming was even a creator of the show, which focused on the adventures of American and Russian members of a secret agency called the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.

There's no doubt in my mind that this will end up being a cool spy thriller. Warner Bros. plans on moving ahead with the production later this year as planned, they just have to figure out and lock down all of the casting. Out of the three choices they are working on right now I'd like to see Gosling take it. Just watch the film Drive and you'll understand why  he would be badass in this role.
