A Sequel to Awesome Spy Thriller THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. is in Early Development!
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was one of my favorite films from 2015. The incredibly entertaining spy thriller came from director Guy Ritchie and starred Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, and Alicia Vikander. I wanted a sequel to this film so bad but it didn't do very well at the box office, so I didn't think we'd ever see a sequel.
Well, I'm super stoked to report that a sequel is actually in very early development! During an interview with /Film, Hammer revealed that the film’s producer and co-writer, Lionel Wigram is currently writing a script for it. He said:
"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 shit all the time. Can you just write a sequel?’ He was like, ‘You know what? Yeah, fuck 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!"
I have no idea if anything will happen with this script, but the fact that it's being written means that there's a chance a sequel could happen somewhere down the line. I'm just such a big fan of the characters that the story revolved around, and I want to see them embark on another spy adventure! I want to see these characters continue to evolve.
If you haven't seen the first movie yet, you've gotta check it out! It left the door wide open for a sequel and there are so many different wild and fun scenarios that could play out. Would you like to see a sequel for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.?
